Description

This qualification is designed to meet the needs of estimators and schedulers and or contract administrators in the building and construction field who may have responsibility for the preparation of estimates from predetermined rates, processing of subcontractor claims and preparation of head and subcontracts for building and construction works.

Occupational titles may include:

  • Building estimator
  • Building scheduler
  • Contract administrator
  • The qualification packaging enables two specialised occupational outcomes depending on elective options which will be reflected as:

  • Certificate IV in Building Project Support (Estimator)
  • Certificate IV in Building Project Support (Contract Administrator)
  • 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.

    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 unit CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.
