RII30318 Certificate III IN Concreting

This qualification provides a trade outcome in Civil Construction, covering work in residential and commercial applications.

Occupational titles may include:

  • Concreter
  • Concrete Pump Operator

The qualification has 15 x core unit of competency and 5 x elective units of competency. A total of 20 units of competency are required.

The construction industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely simulated workplace environment and this qualification requires most units of competency to be delivered in this context.

A construction “White Card”, the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction Training for Construction Work (ASCC 2007) is required before entering a construction work site. Achievement of unit CPCCWHS1001 – Prepare to work safely in the construction industry (or its equivalent) covers this requirement.
