QBCC Approved Managerial Course for Trade Contractors


The Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) Approved Managerial Course is a requirement for obtaining a QBCC Trade Contractors Licence. Tradespeople wanting to sub-contract will need to complete this course.

The course consists of four topics of learning:

  • Structure and financials
  • Legal
  • Bookkeeping
  • Sales

These four topics are separated into individual and manageable tasks, with additional support available from our trade qualified trainers. At the end, there will be a final project. This will help you in understanding how to create credibility with clients and keep your ideas fresh and relevant within the construction industry, no matter your trade.

Upon completion you will be issued with a ‘Statement of Attainment’ for the nationally-recognised competency (BSBSMB401) ‘Establish Legal and Risk management requirements of small business’. It may also be used as an elective unit in the (CPC40110) Certificate IV in Building and Construction.

Our trainers are trade-qualified with relevant industry experience. They work with the apprentice and employer to develop an individual training plan. Consideration is given to the apprentice and employer's circumstances, as well as the range of work that will be covered in the workplace.

Theory is delivered through our online learning platform, and the practical development of on-site skills is documented using our Skills Profiler app. Your designated trainer will track your progress, provide support where required and assess your competency throughout the apprenticeship.
