It's great being the boss – but it’s even better when you know the most effective way of getting the job done and have the qualification to prove it!
This qualification suits anyone who has been working in the construction industry and has moved up to a site supervisor role or who wants to take this step. Plumbers, painters, carpenters and bricklayers are some examples of the tradespeople who enrol for this course.
You'll learn everything you need to know about leadership and all the vital paperwork and regulations every construction project depends on. With the opportunity to attend classes either in person on campus, or online (in real time), it’s an easy way to upskill and future-proof yourself.
The course focuses on time management and planning, workplace communication, contract administration, business systems, taxation and supervision processes. You’ll learn to implement site safety plans, manage specifications and quantity lists, meet employment regulations and manage conflict so you can coordinate sub-contractors to ensure each project is completed on time and meets the required standards.
Upon successfully completing the requirements you'll receive the award of:
- New Zealand Certificate in Construction Related Trades (Supervisor) (Level 4)
