This qualification is designed to meet the needs of specialist demolition workers who dismantle and demolish public, residential, commercial and industrial buildings of all types, and process the resulting materials for salvage, recycling and waste disposal.
There are no entry requirements for this course. It is recommended that participants:
- Be at least 20 years of age
- Have completed Year 10
- Have been employed in the demolition industry and have a minimum of four years’ experience
This qualification is delivered through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). This process involves the candidate providing their assessor with information about their work history, experience, previous formal/informal learning and current work functions/skills to determine their entitlement to the qualification.
Upon enrolment, the candidate will be provided with a RPL Application to complete in their own time, which will enable them to provide evidence of their experience. Once the RPL Application has been completed and submitted to the Registered Training Organisation (RTO), an interview with an assessor will be arranged. This interview will allow the candidate to explain the evidence provided, and allow the assessor to question the candidate on their knowledge skill and experience. The assessor may also conduct site visits to confirm the candidate’s level of knowledge and skill.
If gaps in knowledge, skill or experience are identified, further training can be provided for the candidate to obtain the qualification. The duration of this training is dependent on the individual candidate’s prior and current work experience, and as such will vary in duration.
