The Queensland construction industry has exclusive access to subsidised NCC 2022 training courses. These fast-paced and informative 2 hour sessions will get you across the NCC 2022 amendments. Join us this July, August or September.

HIA’s NCC 2022 training in livable housing and waterproofing starts at just $20. All you need to do to qualify for this funding opportunity is supply your details and relevant documentation*. Get briefed on the changes as soon as possible by booking a virtual session today.

The building industry must be aware of NCC 2022 changes to Accessible (Livable) Housing Provisions and Waterproofing and how they have been adjusted for Queensland. These updates will have major impact on design and construction in the state from October. HIA's training sessions are a fast and easy way to ensure you comply with the new provisions.
