The construction industry is currently untrained in the assembly of prefabricated building systems, and this course provides apprentices, builders and trades related people with the right training to be first movers in this growth area. It’s also a great opportunity for people with no work history to have an experience of working in construction. A taster before commencing a Pre-App course or apprenticeship in construction.
Victoria is the national leader in construction technologies and a destination for those wanting to develop skills and excellence in this field. The strategy aims to stimulate local construction opportunities and grow market share in the use of innovative building products.
The changes to the National Construction Code in 2016 and the local manufacturing of cross laminated timber and other prefabricated timber elements has provided Victoria with an opportunity to increase its uptake of prefabricated timber construction methods and building systems. As such, demand for prefabricated timber construction skills and knowledge is expected to grow over the next ten years. This will generate alternatives to traditional building construction methods and create a skills shortage in the use of prefabricated timber building systems.
