Important steps for this course

Before you apply for the course you are interested in, we want to make sure you have the right skills and support available to be successful in your course. We ask that you complete TasTAFEs literacy and numeracy skills review. It is called the Basic Key Skills Builder (bksb). This skills review will help our staff advise you on the program you are applying for or to provide you guidance on a pathway to this or another qualification. All students must complete the bksb before enrolment can be completed.

Your bksb login details will be sent within 2 business days of applying. It takes about 30 to 60 minutes for each section and is best completed on a computer or tablet rather than your phone.  A calculator can be used for the numeracy section.

View our bksb User Guide (PDF) or bksb User Guide (Word).

If you need additional support, or you don’t have access to a computer, please contact us on 1300 655 307 for assistance.

Advance your career in the plumbing sector by enrolling in this specialised full-qualification licensing pathway for future Plumbing industry leaders.

The course is designed to give you the skills you need to become a Plumbing Contractor or Certified Licenced Supervisor who can officially sign-off or certify a range of prescribed plumbing work.

The Tasmanian Plumbing industry needs future industry leaders with the skills, knowledge and licensing required to operate in a highly competitive environment. To satisfy this demand and Tasmanian Occupational Licensing requirements, TasTAFE is offering the full CPC40920 – Certificate IV in Plumbing and Services qualification to qualified Plumbers wishing to become Plumbing Contractors or Certified Licensed Supervisors.

In this course, you will focus on common core licensing units consisting of reading and interpreting plans and specifications and how to effectively estimate and cost work, as well as identifying hazards, assessing work health and safety risks and carrying out work-based risk control processes.

You’ll also have the opportunity to choose units that match your licensing needs – whether it be roof, sanitary, water, gas or drainage licensing. The flexible delivery of this training will allow you to attend both day and evening classes – depending on the units undertaken.

On successful completion of this course, you will be qualified to sign-off and certify a range of prescribed plumbing work.
