In Queensland, to obtain a builder’s licence, the licence category you need is a Builder – Low Rise. This licence category consists of a contractor’s licence and a site supervisor licence.
If you are qualified in bricklaying/block laying or carpentry, you need a minimum two years’ experience in the licence class scope of work (or other work the Commission is satisfied is at least equivalent to experience in the scope of work for the class).
For all other applicants, you need a minimum four years’ experience in the licence class scope of work (or other work the Commission is satisfied is at least equivalent to experience in the scope of work for the class).
You will need both of the following technical qualification requirements:
You will need to provide written references from three builders who can confirm your supervisory experience.
You may be required to provide information or make a declaration that shows you meet the minimum financial requirements (minimum net tangible assets) to ensure your business is financially sound and stable.
The regulator in Queensland that registers builders is the Queensland Building and Construction Commission.
