TAFE Statement


From 1 January 2008, all licensed builders and swimming pool builders under the new CPD system will be required to accumulate at least 12 points in each year. Most CPD activities allow you to claim one (1) point per hour, and if you earn more than 12 points in a year, you can roll over a maximum of 11 extra CPD points into the following year.

Each of our programs will earn you four (4) points and you can earn them in the comfort of your own home. Our courses are interactive – which means you can ask any questions and interact with other builders during the session. All you need is a computer and internet access. Topics will cover areas such as contract law, homebuilding contracts, workers compensation, occupational health and safety, sub-contractors, home building disputes, use of Sketchup and sustainability.
Topics may be subject to change if latest news items are relevant to the building industry.
Building concepts 1, 2, 3 & 4 will be a two hour session that includes a thorough explanation of current issues that concern the licensed builder in the home building industry.

The sessions offer explanation and quizzes that embrace topics of interest to our builders that may include:
• the latest inclusions in the current BCA and its ‘referenced standards’
• government regulations from departments such as WorkCover, Fair Trading, Fair Work Australia, Small Business, ATO etc
• local government regulations around the submission of building projects for approval and compliance of building work
• helpful computer technologies such as SketchUp, SmartFrame, Gantt Project, PlusSpec etc
