We know that our industry is struggling to complete building projects on time with many problems such as supply chain constraints, the continuing rise in costs, and the lack of available skilled tradespeople. At Master Builders, we can help the industry unlock the skills shortage with education and training. 

How? Master Builders is committed to providing quality nationally recognised qualifications via Recognition of Prior Learning and online learning. Education and training can play a big part in unlocking the skills shortage. We need more people who are working in our industry to become qualified quality tradespeople. And we can help them get there by recognising their skills and experience.

There has never been a better time to consider where a career in the building industry can take you. Now is the ideal time for unqualified workers already working in building and construction to take advantage of the opportunities that a qualification provides. A trade licence can be the next step you need to improve your reputation with quality workmanship and kick-start a life-changing career pathway in building and construction.  

Master Builders offers Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for those who have been working in the industry. If you have industry experience, your Certificate III trade qualification could be much quicker to achieve than you think. RPL is the process by which you can achieve a nationally recognised qualification, without the need to attend classes. You’ll be given an RPL Kit to follow which includes knowledge questions and practical workplace tasks. Your skills can be demonstrated by providing Master Builders with video and/or photographic evidence.

For those looking to take advantage of further career progression in the industry now is the time to upskill. According to the Australian Government's 2022 Skills Priority List, Construction Project Managers have been identified as one of the most in-demand jobs for at least the next 5 years across Australia. The demand for new builds, renovations, and developments is still growing. Look at any Construction Project Manager roles advertised on Seek.com - the average salary is between $125,000 to $145,000 or more depending on experience. In Sydney alone, there are over 500 of these roles currently being advertised.

Master Builders offer flexible online learning solutions with recorded tutorials and support from our industry expert trainers. You can undertake your learning anywhere at any time as long as you have access to the internet and a laptop. Best of all you can complete your qualification in 12 months or less. Most of our students are currently working in the industry and juggling family commitments, at the same time as completing their Certificate IV or Diploma qualification – and you can do it too!
