Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to supervise site communications, monitor and maintain compliance with codes and standards and implement project administration processes on a building and construction project.

It is strongly recommended that the site, as specified in the performance evidence, is ‘live’ (see Companion Volume for guidance).

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to supervise the administration of quality control compliance and the use of site communications and record keeping systems; and conduct onsite inspections to complete the required project administration processes.

This unit applies to National Construction Code (NCC) classifications:

  • Residential - Class 1 buildings to a maximum of two storeys
  • Commercial - NCC Class 2 to 9, Type C only constructions.

This unit of competency is suitable for builders, site managers, forepersons and other construction industry professionals using specialised knowledge and skills to complete routine and non-routine tasks and using their own judgement to deal with predictable and sometimes unpredictable problems.

Completion of the general construction induction training program, specified in the model Code of Practice for Construction Work, is required by anyone carrying out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.
