Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to apply structural principles to the construction of residential or commercial structures. This unit includes applying structural principles to footing, floor, wall and roof systems.

It applies to National Construction Code (NCC) classifications:

  • Residential - Class 1 and 10 buildings, maximum two storeys
  • Commercial - Class 2 to 9, Type C only constructions.

This unit of competency applies to builders, site managers, forepersons and other managers in the building and construction industry who apply structural principles to the demolition or construction of structures.

This unit of competency is suitable for those using specialised knowledge to complete routine and non-routine tasks and using their own judgement to deal with predictable and sometimes unpredictable problems relating to building application approvals.

Completion of the general construction induction training program specified by the model Code of Practice for Construction Work is required for any person who is to carry out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.

Licensing, regulatory or registration requirements apply to this unit of competency in some jurisdictions. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to confirm these requirements.

Pre-requisite Unit

CPCCBC4053

Apply building codes and standards to the construction process for Class 2 to 9 Type C buildings

CPCCBC4001
