Study building and construction

The building and construction industry employs a large number of people in Australia and offers a range of hands-on career options. Employers are looking for qualified candidates who are reliable, and have a solid work ethic and strong organisation skills.

The job outlook remains positive for the building and construction industry. Population growth is driving a demand for new housing construction with commercial building also forecast to grow to support the development of new residential centres. Qualified workers across all aspects of the building and construction industry are in high demand.

TAFE Queensland offers a number of hands-on courses in building and construction. Lay a solid foundation for your career with an entry-level certificate in construction or take control of your career with a certificate IV or diploma specialising in building, estimating, or management. We also offer advanced courses that will allow you to supervise on-site construction and apply for your builders licence in Queensland.
