The concreting trade is a crucial part of Australia's building and construction industry, and involves concrete laying or placement for falsework and formwork. The demands of the building industry ensure that the concreting trade is subject to high quality professional and industrial standards. These standards ensure the structural integrity and safety of building.
Tradespersons are urged to obtain a concreting licence in order to take full advantage of business and or employment opportunities within the trade. With a concreting trade licence, you will be able to work in a variety of concreting and building jobs.
About the Licence
The purpose of a licence in the building and construction sector is to identify a business and to safeguard both the tradesperson and the client. Tradespeople must have the appropriate licences in accordance with state or territorial licencing rules in order to do any concreting or building work. Each state has its own licencing requirements. Despite the differences in state and territorial rules, all concreters are required to adhere to nationally recognised norms and regulations.
To do any general concreting work, building contractors must possess a concreting licence. Concreters who don't have a licence could be subject to harsh penalties.
How to Apply for a Concreting Trade Licence
Below, we provide guidelines for applying for a concreting license in your chosen state.
Licensing procedures vary by state or territory, which means that some states licence concreters individually, while other jurisdictions categorise it under the building trade. In most cases, states will require a concreter to complete an apprenticeship with a licensed concreter, as well as one of the following:
Individuals who do not have a formal qualification may have obtained significant concreting skills and experience, in which case they may receive qualification equivalent skills recognition through a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process. RPL will open up the same licensing and employment opportunities as the above qualifications.
Please contact your state’s licensing body for up to date information as requirements do change. Skills Certified Australia is not an RTO or licensing body.
