CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building)

(Builder, Construction Manager)

CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building) covers all the details on how to plan, prepare and manage residential construction sites from start to finish. Examine the principles, techniques and regulations of the Australian building and construction industry.

If you are an aspiring or working tradesperson, our building and construction certificates are your foundation for success.

This is your first step towards starting your own building business and preparing for the builders license. We understand that you could be a busy tradie by day, that’s why this course offers greater flexibility in terms of how you would like to pursue this course.

Unlike other education providers who simply put a text book up on the internet and call it online learning, CWBTS is different. Our content is all video led, where you hear from industry experts on each topic and have the opportunity to book in and speak with your Trainer and Assessor as you require throughout your studies.

CWBTS’s Video Led, Self-Paced-Online model allows our CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction to be available to participants throughout Australia.
