Here at Builders Academy Australia we live and breathe building and construction. We intimately understand the industry and have strong relationships within the building and construction community and the education sector.

Through these established connections, we are able to deliver qualifications that provide real-world skills. Our graduates leave the academy with a stronger network and the confidence to take the next step in their career.

Builders Academy Australia (BAA) is a learning organisation that offers nationally accredited qualifications for the building and construction industry.

Our qualifications range from pre-apprenticeships up to Diploma level and cover trades such as carpentry, plumbing, work health and safety and building and construction.


We are proud to be a part of the Simonds Group, which also consists of Simonds Homes – one of Australia’s largest domestic home builders.

Simonds Homes was established over 65 years ago by Gary Simonds, and from the humble beginnings of three completed homes in 1970, has grown to a publicly listed company and over 2000 completed homes in 2014.

House of Learning was initially set up as an internal training division to up-skill Simonds staff and subcontractors, then in late 2014 was re-branded as Builders Academy Australia and launched to the Australian public.

We have a wide-ranging student base which includes but is not limited to:

  1. Pre-apprentices and apprentices;
  2. Tradespeople wanting to start their own business or develop their skills;
  3. Non-tradespeople who work within the building and construction industry.

We cater for both individuals wanting to develop their skills and employers wanting to develop the skills of their staff.

Flexible learning

Our Virtual Classroom is an interactive alternative to traditional online classes. You will be able to attend from the comfort of your own home while maintaining all the benefits that come with direct communication and interaction between yourself, your trainer and your fellow classmates. Students login to a virtual classroom environment at set class times from their homes or offices or any other location where they can access the internet via their laptop or PC with a microphone and camera. Trainers deliver each session live with students interacting in real time with other students and the Trainer. Each session is recorded with students able to go back in at a later date and re-watch sections of interest. This allows you to access our virtual classroom programs anywhere in Australia as long as you have access to laptop or PC and internet. Please call our qualified course advisors to discuss costs, scheduling and the next available intake.
