During this prefabricated timber systems course, you'll complete five units including the exciting unit, FWPTMM3209 Install prefabricated timber building systems on site. This provides hands-on learning in the installation of prefabricated timber systems. You'll construct and deconstruct three timber mini-buildings using a crane within the specialist learning hub at Elgar Campus - Box Hill over three days, including:

This course is suited to people working in the construction industry who want to further their capability in new and emerging technologies.
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 three years. This will generate alternatives to traditional building construction methods and create a skills shortage in the use of prefabricated timber building systems.
The construction industry is currently untrained in the assembly of prefabricated building systems, and this course provides builders and tradespeople with the right training to be first movers in this growth area.
