You will have or you will be nearly completing your Building Diploma by now so let’s get started. If not and you have over 7 years site experience in the Building Industry you most likely can obtain your diploma through a reputable RTO such as:
and several others on the web.
Completed Form (form 5 for set 1)
White Card certificate of attainment and not just a photocopy of the card.
Police Clearance no more than 3 months old. If you have any old traffic convictions have them spent so they don't appear.
Provide a history of your work in a Who, What, Where, When and How format. If unsure ATC2 will assist.
Your Diploma listing the units obtained sometimes on another page.
Watch your job description e.g. Site Management is not considered under set 1 pathway. It is accepted for Architects and Engineers yet I have never known such a profession to be a site manager.
Quantity Surveyors yes but their qualification is not accepted.
The Building Commission do not consider Site Management as suitable building experience under Set 1 so it is deducted from months claimed. The staff handling the application process have no experience of the Building Industry so you have to assist them all you can.
It’s a good idea to start adding to your job pictures as they’ll come in handy for marketing later on. They say a picture paints a thousand words so imagine the effect a video will have to your future clients. Let your actions speak louder than your words.
