Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to supervise the planning process and organisation of on-site work for building and construction projects. It includes interpreting contract and planning requirements and developing strategies for scheduling human and physical resources effectively to comply with contractual obligations and meet planning timelines.

It applies to National Construction Code (NCC) classifications:

  • Residential - Class 1 and 10 buildings, maximum three storeys
  • Commercial - Class 2 to 9, Type B and C

This unit of competency applies to builders, related construction industry professionals and senior managers within building and construction firms who are self-directed and initiate and manage complex planning and scheduling.

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.
