Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) (CPC50210)

This qualification is designed to meet the needs of builders, including selecting contractors, overseeing the work and its quality, and liaising with clients.
The builder may also be the appropriately licensed person with responsibility under the relevant building licensing authority in the State or Territory. Builder licensing varies across States and Territories and additional requirements to attainment of this qualification may be required.

Work in diverse range of roles that may include:

  • Builder
  • Building Manager
  • Project Manager
  • Construction Manager

The construction industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely simulated workplace environment and this qualification requires all included units of competency to be delivered in this context.


Additional units of competency may be required to meet builder registration requirements in various States and Territories.

GBL has incorporated unit CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry as an entry requirement to this qualification. Students will need to provide copy of statement of attainment/ certificate/ letter of completion as an evidence of completion of this unit
