Achieve the formal qualification to apply for your WA Building Practitioner Registration with Transformed. This course is specifically designed to meet the requirements in applying for registration as a Building Practitioner.
Each state has different requirements for builders looking to get licensed. In Western Australia, builder licensing is looked after by the Western Australian Building Commission. When you register as a Building Practitioner, you can be the nominated supervisor of a registered building contractor. However, you cannot provide building services directly to another person.
Even if you have the experience to apply for registration as a Building Practitioner, you might still need the formal qualification. To apply for a licence, generally, you need the Diploma of Building and Construction, along with 5 to 7 years’ experience carrying out or supervising building work.
That’s where Transformed can help. Led by our experienced trainers and assessors, this course combines must-know theory with practical examples of work-site application. On successfully completing this course you will receive the Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) which can be used as part of your WA Building Practitioner Registration application.
