How to get a builder's licence

In Australia, if you want to work as a builder or tradesperson you must have a licence or be registered (depending on your state or territory). Before you apply for your licence or registration you will need to gain a combination of experience, technical qualifications, skills and knowledge.

The first step in this process is to complete training for the relevant qualifications in your state or territory. In some states you may also need to participate in ongoing training workshops to maintain your licence or registration.
