In Western Australia, there are many reasons why a builder’s licence is necessary. The main reason is that it’s a requirement of the law, and you might be limited to working on low- or mid-rise structures and buildings if you are not licenced.

Only those with a builder’s licence WA can work on projects and structures that are valued at $20,000 and above, and this means it might be quite difficult to find profitable jobs as a builder without a licence or any form of certification.

Your licence means you work under the Western Australia Building Commission and must abide by their rules and regulations. As a result, any project you work on is within your state’s jurisdiction, making you a more attractive prospect for any local jobs.

Lastly, with a builder’s licence WA, you minimise your chances of being involved in a construction failure. Having a licence means that you are suitably qualified and have the professional skill set to carry out tasks without falling into major pitfalls. This adds to your hireability as it can help you land bigger jobs as you’re essentially listed as a suitable candidate to carry out any building tasks within Western Australia.
