Builder Medium Rise

Education In Building provides RPL assessment options to gain this qualification.

RPL assessment enables you to forego training and move directly to having your skills assessed, thus avoiding the need for unnecessary training that brings with it additional costs, including time and effort.

The objective of the RPL assessment process is to ensure that an individual's prior learning achieved through formal and informal training, work experience or other life experience is appropriately recognised.

The exciting concept of our skills assessment service means that all the work required to complete the assessment is done at home or in your work environment. The assessment tools are easliy transportable to any location you may be working or living.

This qualification is designed to meet the needs of builders, including selecting contractors, overseeing the work and its quality, and liaising with clients. This qualification covers building theory and practice related to low rise buildings and associated light steel structures. Skills Assessment allows you to show skills you have developed, specialist skills and knowledge in areas such as planning, drafting, quantities take off, estimating, scheduling, construction technology, OHS, site supervision, surveying, cost control and business management.
