    Just wondered if anyone had done their builders/contractors licence recently?

    i do plastering, wall & floor tiling, refitting of kitchens. I also do general building, we renovate houses here in uk and want to pursue that in oz.

     

    if anyone has any tips for me that would be great, can I study on line?

     

    Does anyone have any books that I can buy of them to study first over here, or know where I can get them?

     

    thanks in adadvance will

    There are two parts to the builders licence Its 6-7 years since I done mine then it was part 1 undertake financial planning part 2 was establish business and legal requirements.They give you a take home test to do you send it back in once finnished and they will phone you and ask some question to make sure you understand it.once you have done these courses and passed you then apply to OCBA for your licence, you tell them what type of work you want to carry out they will interveiw you and ask for proof ie trade papers courses you have done etc they will ask you questions on what you have said what type of work you want to carry out and they will tell you what they will give you a licence for. .I done it over two weekends at the masterbuilders who give you a discount if you join the master builders which is a bit of a waste of money the best thing is to apply for a CITB card and that will get you a good discount on the course.
