Description

This qualification provides an introduction to the construction industry, its culture, occupations, job roles and workplace expectations. The units of competency cover essential work health and safety requirements, the industrial and work organisation structure, communication skills, work planning, and basic use of tools and materials. The qualification is built around a basic construction project unit that integrates the skills and embeds the facets of employability skills in context.

The qualification is suited to VET in Schools programs or learners with no previous connection to the construction industry or relevant employment history.

There are no specific job outcomes to this qualification, but the skills achieved will assist in successfully undertaking a Certificate II pre-vocational program or job outcome qualification, or will facilitate entry into an Australian Apprenticeship.

The unit CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry is designed to meet OHS regulatory authority requirements for OHS induction and must be achieved before access to any building and construction work site.

The construction 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. A substantial period of work placement is recommended to ensure the unit outcomes are met.
