Career Area:Building Industries Product Code:CPC20112-01V01 National Code:CPC20112
Certificate II in ConstructionThis qualification provides an occupational outcome and a range of support tasks
applicable to a majority of construction work sites.

The qualification has core units of competency that are required in many
Certificate III qualifications. The elective options are structured to allow
choice from a range of units aligned at Certificate III level and in total could
provide meaningful credit in a construction industry Australian Apprenticeship.

The construction industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading
to recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely simulated
workplace environment and this qualification requires all units of competency to
be delivered in this context.

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. Achievement of unit
CPCCOHS1001A covers this requirement.
