CPC40110 Certificate IV in Building and Construction


The CPC40110 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building) is a nationally recognised qualification covers the skills and knowledge relating to the construction and management of residential and commercial low rise building projects.

It gives existing tradespeople the opportunity to advance their career to become a licensed low-rise builder through the QBCC in Queensland.  It is also the minimum requirement in most other states in Australia to becoming a building contractor and operating a small to medium construction business.

Core offers all students the opportunity to obtain recognition of their existing skills and knowledge gained through their years on the tools. This means you only train in areas that you are not currently familiar with and can reduce the duration of your course significantly.

Over 94% of students who complete this course are employed or go onto further study.
