This qualification reflects the role of individuals working in an operational role in civil construction, who undertake a prescribed range of tasks using limited practical skills and fundamental knowledge, in a defined context working under supervision.
Becoming a trainee will provide you with the ability to combine work with structured training. Trainees will be given the opportunity to learn an array of specialist practical skills and knowledge relevant to civil construction.
Traineeships require employers to enter into a training contract with the trainee and the Registered Training Organisation (RTO). Employers then work with the RTO and trainee to draw up a training plan. The employer can discuss with the RTO selection of electives, sequencing of competency units – timing, location and mode of delivery..
There are no entry requirements for this qualification. To be eligible for a traineeship, applicants must:
- Be at least 15 years of age
- Have completed Year 10
- Be employed within the civil construction industry
This qualification may be delivered in a clustered, blended approach combining traditional classroom training, distance or online learning with work-based experiences, recognition of prior learning and allowable credit transfers. The classroom component of the qualification is customised to suit the individual client needs. The length and complexity of work-based training sessions will differ and be dependent on the progress of individual participants. Accelerated learning is open to all participants providing that they are able to demonstrate competency in all units required to gain the qualification.
This qualification can be delivered over the following timeframes:
- Eighteen (18) months as a full-time trainee; or
- Thirty-six (36) months as a school based trainee
In addition to on-the-job training by the employer, the RTO will deliver face-to-face off the job training through day release.
