It covers how to follow mandatory work health and safety requirements in accordance with safety legislative requirements as well as infection control and prevention procedures to ensure you are working safely.

You will learn how to use a range of construction equipment and tools including levelling devices, skills to work in a construction team, and basic construction work applications for new and existing structures including residential homes, units and apartments.
