Modification History

Revised qualification deemed not equivalent to CPC20111

Qualification packaging amended:

  • same total number of units, but core units required increased by one and elective units reduced with the move of CPCCCM2010B from elective to core
  • change in options regarding choice of elective units
  • elective unit grouping changed resulting in deletion of some elective units

Core and elective units revised resulting in a number of unit identifier changes

Description

This qualification provides an occupational outcome and a range of support tasks applicable to a majority of construction work sites.

Occupational titles may include:

  • builder's labourer.

The qualification has core units of competency that are required in many Certificate III qualifications. The elective options are structured to allow choice from a range of units aligned at Certificate III level and in total could provide meaningful credit in a construction industry Australian Apprenticeship.

The construction industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely simulated workplace environment and this qualification requires all units of competency to be delivered in this context.

Completion of the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction Training for Construction Work (ASCC 2007) is required before entering a construction work site. Achievement of unit CPCCOHS1001A covers this requirement.
