Trade Licensing

In accordance with the Federal and State Governments of Australia, every individual trying to build a career in the building and construction industry must be licensed. Being a Licensed trade person is essential in building a reputation and providing assurance to your clients. In order to get your license, your need to provide evidence that you have the required skill set. A great way to get your qualifications nationally recognized is through getting certified by a process known as RPL (Recognition Prior Learning)

We have developed the trade licensing process into four easy steps

Relevant Expertise

You are required to have relevant expertise and qualifications before applying for the license. If, however, you do not have an official certification of your skillset, we will be able to get you certified using the RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) process which directly evaluates your merit by assessing your aptitudes, information, and experience provided by one of our partnered RTOs

Skillset Evaluation

If you have advanced through the previous process, we will go through your current and formal work experience in the industry. We will provide a strategic mentorship on building your portfolio based on your work evidence.

Evidence Evaluation

Every Document that is required for you to provide will be checked and verified by our team of specialists prior to the final licensing application. Such documents include past trade history, past license history, past work history criminal records (if any), insurance (if applicable), Employment contracts, Reference letters, Completed projects, Worksheets, Previously attended training & workshops, Prior study, and transcripts, Any “on the job” training, etc.
