CPC40912 Roof Plumbing Specialist – License Training Program

Selected units from the CPC40912 – Certificate IV in Plumbing and Services

What will I need to bring?

Specific unit requirements will be provided upon enrolment.

Are there any ‘other’ costs?

Your roof course will require the purchasing of relevant Australian Standards and/or prescribed textbooks. Students will be provided with a list of required documents prior to course commencement. You will be able to purchase Standards through a commercial outlet, or once enrolled you will be able to print required Standards from a TasTAFE library for a nominal printing fee.

Essential Requirements

Students must have completed a Certificate III in Plumbing/Roof Plumbing or have successfully completed the TasTAFE Roof Plumbers Recognition Gap Training Program.

Work Placements, Licensing and Other Requirements

Completion of selected units will enable the participant to approach the state Licensing Regulator and apply for Roof Plumbing ‘Certifier’ licensing. This would enable the applicant to ‘sign-off’ on roof work for an employer, or alternatively work as an independent contractor (coupled with Contractor Licensing). Participants are encouraged to discuss their licensing needs with the licensing regulator at Building Standards and Occupational Licensing (BSOL) Tasmania.


To help ensure this is the right course for you, all applicants will be interviewed by a regional Certificate IV coordinator.

Student Support

TasTAFE’s enrolment and orientation process provides information about our resources, services and support. Further details relating to Student Support Services are available at our Student Support Services page.

Qualification Requirements

To achieve licensing outcomes, all students must complete the 4 x Common Core units plus the specific roof stream licensing unit.

A full Certificate IV pathway is not relevant to Roof Specialist Licensing applicants.
