Owner Builder Course Overview

Our online owner builder course meets all the educational requirements set out by Fair Trading NSW which includes the following units of competency:

  • CPCCWHS2001 Apply WHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry

An Owner Builder is a homeowner who holds a Permit and performs the traditional role of a licensed builder and manages construction work that is being carried out on his or her own residential premises. As part of the project, an Owner Builder orders building materials and engages contractors directly to carry out construction work, and they effectively manage the whole project in the same way that a licensed builder normally would.
