Construction workers keen to get their QBCC license would benefit from CQUniversity’s Certificate IV in Building and Construction.

Construction workers keen to get their QBCC license would benefit from CQUniversity’s Certificate IV in Building and Construction, according to teacher Clayton Thomasson.

Clayton said the unique qualification, which is due to start in July, would suit experienced tradies looking to take that next step.

“If you come from a tradie background, this course would be advantageous because it’s a bit more on the managerial side and more advanced,” he said.

“It would suit those who wanted to get their low-rise builder’s number so they could apply to get their QBCC License.”

The new face-to-face course entails 16 units, with one unit a month, accommodating those working in the industry.

Clayton said although the course is theory-based, the skills and knowledge acquired would benefit the participants on-site.

“If you’re already working on site, you’ll be able to relate a lot of theory back to the day-to-day job.”

Those interested can enrol in the course at any time. For more information visit https://www.cqu.edu.au/courses/certificate-iv-in-building-and-construction-building
