Certificate III in Roof Plumbing

CPC32612
Average Price: Not available
Average Duration: 4 Years

This qualification provides a trade outcome in roof plumbing.

Occupational titles may include:

  • Roof plumber.
  • The qualification has core and elective unit of competency requirements that cover some common skills for the plumbing industry, as well as roof plumbing specialist units of competency.

    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.

    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.

    These are the outcomes of graduates surveyed six months after completing their training for similar courses 'Certificate III in the field of Architecture and Building'
