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.

      To work as a building practitioner in Western Australia, 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.

      First, it allows you to work on projects over the value of $20,000

      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.

      The Construction & Property Services Industry Skills Council projections support a continuation of steady growth in the building and construction industry. Already the third largest industry sector employer in Australia, the construction industry is forecast to create an additional 80,000 new jobs over the next five years. All sections of the industry:  Commercial construction; House building; Apartment building and Engineering construction – are experiencing growth. With the additional surge in renovation projects – worth $6.6 billion in 2017 (the highest in 10 years) – demand for qualified tradespeople is increasing and employment capacity is at its highest since 2008.

      Australia’s building and construction industry generates approximately $350 billion annually and is projected to increase to $400 billion by 2024.

      Vortex Education has designed the CPC50220 Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) to reflect the requirements for Builders licence registration.

      There are no entry requirements for this qualification. (As per training package rules)

      The specific course entry requirements are (for example, LLN, technology skills or pre-requisite qualifications):

      ·         No formal entry requirements, however, the learner must be employed in industry.

      ·         Have access to a worksite and be able to conduct on-site supervision.

      ·         A good command of English reading skills to be able to read textbooks and conduct own research.

      ·         Basic computer skills to create, save and edit documents.

      ·         Fundamental mathematics knowledge and numeracy skills.

      ·         Be able to dedicate workplace practice hours as stipulated under workplace training arrangements.

       

      Completion of the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction Training for Construction Work (ASCC 2007) is required before entering a construction work site.

      CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry (or equivalent), also known as the Site Induction or 'White Card' is required prior to learners entering a building or construction site.  If not already completed, learners are required to complete this unit of competency with an external RTO provider at their own cost.

      Before attending site for any training and assessment, the students will be guided in getting ready to work in the building industry and construction industry.  They will be supported to complete the following:

      ·         Complete ‘white card’ training (legal requirement for accessing construction zones)

      ·         Make own connections with builders/construction companies and industry bodies

      ·         access building sites to observe building and construction work (must have ‘white card’

      ·         carry out assessment tasks in real or simulated work environments

      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.
