The Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building) course, offers study credits through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), the issuance of formal qualifications in recognition of the skills you have already gained through your life, work and other study.
Depending on your background, if you have more than 2 years full-time experience, through RPL, full qualifications can be gained in under 13 weeks. Enrolments are taken on an ongoing basis. You can commence the process here online at any time 24/7, over the phone or in person during our business hours.
MIBT will appoint a specialist trainer/assessor, that will work with you to guide and assist as you in evidencing the skills you hold. Your trainer will come to you to assess your work, evidence and document any RPL and credit transfer/s or indicating completion of any course units required for the full Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building) qualification. MIBT will provide any skills gap training if required.
RPL, is an experience, knowledge and skill assessment process that allows you to attain a nationally-recognised trade qualification, based on the skills and knowledge you have gained through your previous experience in the building industry.
You will be assigned a qualified trainer/assessor who will support you through the the RPL process. RPL assessments are evidence-based. You must be able to provide evidence of your skills and knowledge for an assessor to deem you ‘competent’. If you don’t already have all the skills you need, your MIBT trainer will work with you through the learning and work-based assessment units you need to complete. Enrolling as a RPL candidate doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be successful in your application for skills recognition, nor does it automatically qualify you for your building licence.
The core requirement is that you must have worked in the building industry for at least 2-3 three years, under the supervision of a qualified builder or contractor. This applies regardless of whether your training or experience was developed in Australia or abroad. To be successful, you need to be able to provide evidence of the skills and knowledge you have gained. If you have previously started a course, you may receive credits for any completed units, even if you didn’t finish the course.
You will need to put together your portfolio of evidence, detailing your existing skills and experience. This will need to be confirmed and signed off, by a qualified builder or contractor that supervised you during the period you developed your building skills. Your MIBT trainer/assessor will review your work experience and then arrange a meeting with you, to fully assess your credentials for qualification. Any gaps can be covered by online study and work-place based training and assessment. Simply call MIBT now on 1300 642 457 to discuss your specific needs.
