Certificate I in Construction

​This qualification provides an introduction to the construction industry, its culture, occupations, job roles and workplace expectations.
The units of competency cover essential workplace health and safety requirements, the industrial and work organisation structure, communication skills, work planning, and basic use of tools and materials. The qualification is built around a basic construction project unit that integrates the skills and embeds the facets of employability skills in context.
This qualification is suited to learners with no previous connection to the construction industry or relevant employment history.
There are no specific job outcomes to this qualification, but the skills achieved will assist in successfully undertaking a Certificate II pre-vocational program or job outcome qualification, or will facilitate entry into an Apprenticeship within the construction industry.
