Course Details
Training Package Version : Release 1
Are you interested in two courses at one time?  Central Regional TAFE offers the CPC20112 Certificate II in Construction along with the 52807WA Certificate I in Industrial Skills at the same time.  Click here for more information.
This qualification provides a pathway to the primary trades in the construction industry with the exception of plumbing.  Trade outcomes are predominantly achieved through an Australian Apprenticeship and this Certificate II allows for inclusion of skills suited for entry to off-site occupations, such as joinery and shopfitting as well as carpentry, bricklaying and other occupations in general construction.

This Certificate II is designed to introduce learners to the recognised trade callings in the construction industry and provide meaningful credit in a construction industry Australian Apprenticeship. The qualification has core unit of competency requirements that are required in most Certificate III qualifications. The elective options are structured to allow choice from areas of trade skills as an introduction to a range of occupations. 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 units of competency to be delivered in this context.

This qualification will provide you with the practical skills and knowledge to undertake a range of manual labouring tasks on building and construction sites.
Licencing Outcomes
Completion of the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction Training for Construction Work (ASCC 2007) is required before entering a construction work site.  Achievement of unit CPCCOHS1001A covers this requirement.
VET Student Loans : This course is NOT eligible for a VET Student Loan.
Please note that enrolments for Semester 2 are not available at our Geraldton Campus for this qualification.  Enrolments are available for Semester 2 at our Carnarvon Campus.
