Why enrol?

Endorsed by our Master Builders' in-house safety team, students who enrol in our Certificate IV in Work Health & Safety course can be assured they are not only learning from the industry leader, but from the Association who actively works with government on the development of Safety Policy and Standards for the construction industry in Queensland.

We recognise that our students are actively working in the construction industry and therefore have a base level of knowledge about safety. This allows Master Builders to offer a six-day intensive program, where each student can spend up to 10 hours with a trainer.

We understand that it's difficult to have six consecutive days off the job site or office. So, our program is broken into two workshop blocks. While the delivery of information occurs over six days, students have three months to complete any outstanding assessments.
