The Certificate IV in Building & Construction recognises the skills and experience of experienced builders who have not yet completed their qualifications. We can help builders attain the subjects and qualifications needed to obtain a building contractor's licence.
This RPL program is available to Australian students with partially completed local studies, as well as to Australian builders with industry experience. Migrants can convert their overseas qualifications into Australian recognised certifications, provided they have extensive knowledge of Australian building requirements and standards.
Completing RPL assessment is easy. Our assessors will request certain documents proving your proficiency in a number of industry tasks before you are deemed competent. Being able to prove that you have or are currently working at a comparable level is a strong asset. Letters of employment, current employment contracts and letters of reference from licensed tradespeople you’ve worked with are all acceptable, as well as a résumé (your student support representative can help you compile a CV).
Being able to show a history of learning in the industry – alongside later application of that education – can also aid your RPL assessment. Transcripts or marked assessments from relevant previous qualifications, apprenticeship papers and evidence of comparable overseas qualifications all fall under this category. We also accept video or photos of your work.
In addition, you’ll be able to demonstrate your abilities in the event that you can’t produce the relevant documentation.

An industry-recognised qualification can advance you in your current career path, or can help you into a new, better one. Upon receiving your certification, you could qualify for a position as a builder or a construction manager. Advance yourself professionally with our help.
Our RPL program allows people across Australia to carry a nationally-recognised qualification, broadening their job prospects without laborious, expensive retraining. You’ll be provided with your certification within four weeks of providing all the necessary evidence, giving you a new start in your career sooner, not later.
Skills Certified wants to make it as easy and stress-free to receive the acknowledgement you deserve. In the event that you’re deemed not competent for the qualification you’re pursuing, you’ll be eligible for a 100 per cent refund of any fees paid, or free gap training by a qualified instructor to get you accredited.
