Why enrol?

Endorsed by our Master Builders' in-house safety team, students who enrol in our BSB41419 - Certificate IV in Work Health and 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.

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