This qualification reflects the role of a skilled operator working in civil construction, who applies a broad range of skills in a varied work context, using some discretion and judgement and relevant theoretical knowledge.
This program is offered as a 24 month (WA) or 36 month (SA) Contract of Training. Formal training may be completed in a shorter amount of time.
There are theory and practical training and assessment components to the course.
Skills will be trained and assessed through a mixture of off-the-job and on-the-job training and assessment.
You may be able to seek recognition for your previous studies or experience. Civil Train offers Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) and Credit Transfer (CT) for this qualification.
Credit transfer involves assessing a previously completed course or subject to see if it provides equivalent learning or competency outcomes to those required within the current course of study.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) provides students with an opportunity to have their current skills and competencies recognised.
These skills and competencies may relate to units that they are about to commence and as a result may exempt them from studying these units.
