Course Code and Name:
CPC30320 – Certificate III in Concreting

Qualification Description:
This is a qualification for concreters working in concreting operations on residential and
commercial projects.

Occupational titles include:

  • Concreter
  • concrete tilt panel fabricator.

This qualification has core unit of competency requirements that cover common skills for the construction industry, as well as a specialist field of work in concreting.

The construction industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in an actual workplace or very closely simulated workplace environment, and this qualification requires all units of competency to be delivered in this context.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to concreting in some states and territories. For further information, check with the relevant regulatory authority.
Completion of the general construction induction training program, specified in the Safe Work Australia model Code of Practice: Construction Work, is required by anyone carrying out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.
