Some FAQ

If i start the course online and do some of the course can i log back on and start off where i finished.

The system is set up to allow you to go in and out as often as you require.

Our Learning Management System stores your work, including during the owner-builder final assessments.

How long does the course take to complete on line by staying on line from start to finish.

Depends entirely on your commitment, background and personal experience. The nominal course duration is 24 hours for Queensland Owner Builder Course and 50 to 60 hours for the 5 Units of Competency required to satisfy the NSW Owner Builder course. These times include study and assessment time.

Most people allow a weekend or two to get through the QLD course content and complete the assessments/assignments. For NSW we normally tell people to allow at least one week to get through the course and assessments.

Do I need the safety induction card?

You can obtain an owner-builder permit for Queensland without the White Card (General Safety Induction Training) however, we believe that as an owner builder and hence the Principal Contractor, the legislation requires you to hold a White Card. For NSW, the Department of Fair Trading requires the Owner Builder Permit applicant to hold a White Card or proof of General Safety Induction Training
