Certificate IV in Civil Construction Supervision is designed for those people who are working in independent and self-managing roles in civil construction. Roles may include:

  • Site foreman or supervisors
  • Team leaders
  • Contract administrators

There are no pre-requisites for this program, however civil construction work experience is desirable, and it is not possible to demonstrate competence unless working in the industry.

Participants are required to undertake a number of assessment activities, including:

  • Lodgement of an up-to-date CV;
  • Completion of a third party report;
  • Various work-based assessment tasks; and
  • Completion of written question and answers.

Assessment for the Certificate IV in Civil Construction Supervision is against the competency standards within the Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package (RII09). Participants can expect to spend about 60 hours undertaking assessment tasks.

An estimate of costs can be provided on request, but fees will only be confirmed when you enrol. If you are currently employed within the Queensland building and construction industry you may be eligible to have your current skills and knowledge recognised which means you could obtain your official qualification very easily and at no cost through CSQ (Construction Skills Queensland) provided funding.

Assessment by portfolio and interview is available to those with workplace experience in civil construction roles. This approach requires the participant to furnish substantial evidence of administration and coordination experience along with a signed reference from a team leader or manager.
