Building and construction trade licences are issued by the Building Services Board in Western Australia.
Only registered builders with a building permit may carry out building work totalling $20,000 or more, according to the Builder's Registration Act of 2011. A licenced builder must also carry a building permit to do building work, such as concreting to the same value.
Concreting is covered under the building licence in Western Australia, and concreters have access to two types of licences. Registered builders must have one or both:
Building Practitioner Licence - This allows the practitioner to carry out building work, or to act as a nominated building supervisor.
Building Contractor Licence - This allows the individual to enter into contracts, appoint nominated supervisors and hire subcontractors. Under the building contractor licenses, are three sub-licences, namely:
- company or body corporate
An applicant who wishes to qualify for a Western Australian trade licence for concreters must possess a nationally recognised qualification, such as the Certificate III in Concreting CPC30313, which demonstrates their general concreting skills, including:
- Concrete Spreading
- Finishing and curing
- Using concreting machinery
