This qualification provides an introduction to the construction industry, its
culture, occupations, job roles and workplace expectations. The units of
competency cover essential work health and safety requirements, the industrial
and work organisation structure, communication skills, work planning, and basic
use of tools and materials. The qualification is built around a basic
construction project unit that integrates the skills and embeds the facets of
employability skills in context.

The qualification is suited to VET in Schools programs or learners with no
previous connection to the construction industry or relevant employment history.

There are no specific job outcomes to this qualification, but the skills
achieved will assist in successfully undertaking a Certificate II pre-vocational
program or job outcome qualification, or will facilitate entry into an
Australian Apprenticeship.

This is a Certificate I in Construction program specifically for Pre-Apprentices.

Additionally, as part of the Pre-Apprenticeship Program, you will also be enroled into a Statement of Attainment in Housing Skills which includes: Wall frames, Trusses, Eaves, Scaffolding and Work safely at heights.

This course is aimed at students aged between 16 to 25 years old and looking to gain an apprenticeship in the construction field.

An additional equipment fee of $260 is charged to provide you with all the resources (textbooks) and PPE (hi-viz shirt, safety glasses, etc) that you require for the course.

The only additional cost to the equipment fee is that you will need to provide your own AS safety boots (steel cap boots).

You will be contacted if you have been accepted into course after the Information/Interview Session, to organise payment and secure your position.
