WANT TO ACHIEVE AN INTERIOR SYSTEMS NATIONAL CERTIFICATE?
The Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation [BCITO] is appointed by the Government to develop and implement qualifications for the building and construction industry.
With a nationwide network of trained and experienced staff, the BCITO is dedicated to providing expert advice and training resources to help start your career in the Interior Systems industry. You can be qualified in plaster board or fibre cement linings fixing and/or finishing, fibrous plaster manufacture or installation, and suspended ceilings or interior partitions installation.
There are two pathways to achieving an Interior Systems National Certificate:
1. Competency Based Training is an agreement between an employer and apprentice to train and assess skills, and is designed for someone entering the trade for the first time. The qualification is structured so you can learn at your own pace, and be assessed as you go.
2. Experience Recognition Process (ERP) is a means of recognising the skills and knowledge of those already working in the industry as a trade professional. To qualify through the ERP process you are required to provide evidence of your work and undergo an accelerated assessment process. Contact the AWCI office as we can offer a subsidised programme to assist new members with the ERP process.
In most cases Interior Systems National Certificates are completed doing an apprenticeship. The length of time to complete a National Certificate depends on how quickly you can meet the level of skill and knowledge required. Once all the requirements have been met, you receive your National Certificate.
Having qualified in an Interior Systems trade, there are a variety of career paths to choose from including:
- Specialising in residential (housing) or commercial construction
- Working for a large construction company
- Running your own business and being your own boss
