New registration (first time)

To become a registered Builder in WA, registration with the Building Services Board is required. If you intend to be the ‘nominated supervisor’ of a building contractor, you must be registered as a building practitioner.

If you are a builder and you neither intend to seek building permits from local government permit authorities, nor intend to contract directly with others to provide building work valued at over $20,000, you do not need to be registered.

When considering an application for registration as a building practitioner, the Board considers, among other factors, the applicant’s qualifications, experience and fitness to be registered.

Registration as a building practitioner does not authorise a person to provide services as a building contractor.

How do I apply?

To apply for registration as a building practitioner you must complete the application form for the set that you wish to apply under. There are five sets, each with different requirements. Select the set most suited to your qualifications and experience. Submit your completed application form to Licensing Services along with your supporting documentation and applicable fees.

Each application is thoroughly reviewed by the Licensing staff and may be individually considered by the Building Services Board.

Time frame for application processing

Most building practitioner applications are determined within 14 weeks. You can assist by submitting all of the information required in your application and allow sufficient time for it to be fully assessed.

      Builders have flexible work hours

      Despite the hard work builders do, most builders are actually a very content group of people. And this is because the sector places huge importance on building and nurturing strong working relationships, which makes a great deal of sense. Compare our own working lives, the people that we work with are hugely influential to how we feel at work. And the stronger our working relationships are, the better the chance of experiencing enjoyment in work.

      Building relationships

      As a builder cements their working relationships, they will come to have a strong network of people to call upon. You may have come across the benefits of networking in a number of careers advice articles, and this is really prominent with being a builder. As the old saying goes: “It’s not what you know, it is who you know.” Up-and-coming builders won’t notice the benefits of having strong working relationships until they become more established or self-employed. An experienced builder will begin to speak to their contacts to ask for favours. Whether that may be asking for help or getting some stock, thanks to their strong working relationships, it is easier for them to get what they want.

      Hiring Others And Giving Back

      One of the best perks about being your own boss is that you not only get to create an amazing job and work environment for yourself but for others, as well. By creating your own company and hiring staff, you’re giving back to others, as well as to the local and national economy.

       You also have the opportunity to give back to the local community beyond creating jobs. That may mean offering traineeships and apprenticeships to local kids, sponsoring events for local charities, or anything else you can dream up. More businesses than ever are incorporating social change into their models and being your own boss means you can choose to do the same.

      Under the Building Services (Registration) Act 2011, only a registered building practitioner or a registered building contractor can perform particular building work. The Building Services Board is the registration authority and is supported in its work by Building and Energy. The legislation has two categories of registration:

      • practitioner; and
      • Contractor

      Practitioner registration is for individuals. It allows a person to be the nominated supervisor of a registered building contractor and to use the title ‘registered building practitioner’. A practitioner may not provide building services directly to another person.

      Contractor registration is for individuals, partnerships and companies that intend to trade as builders. This registration allows a business to provide services as a builder for work that requires a building permit, has a value of $20,000 or more and is located within the area of the Building Services Board’s jurisdiction.
