Modification History

Revised qualification deemed equivalent to CPC50612

  • elective unit CPCPGS4011C Design and size consumer gas installations updated to equivalent version

Description

This qualification provides an outcome for:

  • specialist hydraulic design consultants who design plumbing and services systems for residential and commercial buildings.

Occupational titles may include:

  • Hydraulic design consultant.

The qualification has core and elective unit of competency requirements that cover common administration and plumbing industry skills plus specialist design competencies.

This qualification does not meet the competency requirements for plumbing registration or licensing. 

The plumbing 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.

NB: 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.

Pathways Information

Not applicable.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

This qualification does not meet the competency requirements for plumbing registration or licensing.

Entry Requirements

This qualification has an entry requirement of CPC40912 Certificate IV in Plumbing and Services - Hydraulic services design stream, or an equivalent qualification.

Packaging Rules

To achieve this qualification, the candidate must demonstrate competency in:

  • 34 units of competency:
  • 31 core units
  • 3 elective units.

One of the three elective units may be selected from a Diploma qualification from CPC08 or another current Training Package, or from the core or elective units of another stream within CPC50412 Diploma of Plumbing and Services, ensuring both the integrity of the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) alignment and the industry context of the qualification are maintained.

Some units in this qualification may have prerequisite requirements, which must be met when packaging the qualification. Users are referred to the list of CPC08 units with prerequisite unit requirements available in this Training Package for this purpose.
