Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 6.0.

Supersedes and is not equivalent to CPCCBS6008 Process building applications for residential buildings up to three storeys.

New prerequisite requirement.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to process building applications for buildings included in National Construction Code (NCC) definitions for Class 1 and 10 up to three storeys and not exceeding 2,000 square metres in floor area. It includes gathering and assessing documentation that supports the building application process required to obtain a building permit.

This unit is suitable for building surveyors who draw on their broad theoretical knowledge and technical skills to carry out the statutory role of ensuring that proposed building projects meet relevant compliance requirements prior to commencement of construction.

This unit forms part of the licensing requirements for building surveying in some states and territories. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to clarify these requirements.

Pre-requisite Unit

CPCCBS6101 Research and evaluate construction methods and materials for Class 1 and 10 buildings to three storeys.

Unit Sector

Building surveying

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe what needs to be done to demonstrate achievement of the element.

Supersedes and is not equivalent to CPCCBS6008 Process building applications for residential buildings up to three storeys.

New prerequisite requirement.

Performance Evidence

To demonstrate competency, a candidate must meet the elements and performance criteria of this unit by processing three building applications involving the following Classes of buildings as defined by the National Construction Code (NCC):

  • two Class 1 buildings
  • one Class 10 building excluding sheds and swimming pools.

Each building must be up to three storeys and not exceeding 2,000 square metres in floor area, and in a different geographical location as defined by the NCC.

Knowledge Evidence

To be competent in this unit, a candidate must demonstrate knowledge of:

  • building permit processes and submission requirements
  • legislative and local planning and building requirements governing the issuing of building approval permits in the jurisdictions relevant to each building specified in the performance evidence
  • legislative roles and responsibilities of those issuing building permits in the relevant jurisdiction
  • NCC classifications and definitions for Class 1 and 10 buildings:
  • building types
  • geographic and climate zones
  • processes for seeking and obtaining approval or consent from service authorities
  • types of disciplines from which specialist advice may be sought
  • types of plans and documentation submitted as part of building applications for Class 1 and 10 buildings:
  • building approval application form
  • concept drawings to scale, with relevant calculations, levels, notes and specifications
  • documentation applicable to or as specified by the local authority
  • proof of building site ownership.

Assessment Conditions

Assessors must meet the requirements for assessors contained in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations.

Assessors must also:

  • be licensed as a Building Surveyor Level 1 (or equivalent) or Level 2 (or equivalent) in their state or territory, or
  • demonstrate current membership of a relevant industry association and have current registration on the National Building Professionals Register in the Building Industry Control category (level 1), or
  • be accredited under the Australian Institute of Building Surveyors (AIBS) National Accreditation Scheme at Building Surveyor level or be accredited by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors as a building certifier.

Assessment must be conducted in the workplace or a simulated workplace using realistic conditions, materials, activities, responsibilities, procedures, safety requirements and environmental considerations. Submission of building permits to local authorities may be simulated.

Candidates must have access to equipment, software, drawings, documentation and materials required to achieve the performance evidence.
