Certificate II in Construction

Career Area:Building Industries 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.

required before entering a construction work site. Achievement of unit
CPCCOHS1001A covers this requirement.
