Construction/Plumbing/Allied Trades

Short Course Plumber’s License – Short Courses

Selected units from the CPC40912 Certificate IV in Plumbing and Services

(License specific training courses – selected units)

To meet Tasmanian Occupational Licensing requirements for the Plumbing industry, the TasTAFE Plumbing and Refrigeration Team offer Semester-based structured delivery and assessment opportunities in selected units required for licensing. Most courses are conducted as night class sessions with some specific units delivered as daytime sessions.

All courses are structured towards completion of relevant units within the allocated dates, allowing you to plan with some certainty the progression of your plumbing trade licensing requirements (subject to successful completion).

Career Opportunities

Completion of selected units will enable the participant to approach the state Licensing Regulator and apply for Plumbing ‘Certifier’ licensing in a stream, or streams relevant to their workplace requirements. This would allow the applicant to ‘sign-off’ on prescribed work for an employer, or alternatively work as an independent plumbing contractor (coupled with Contractor Licensing).

Participants are encouraged to discuss their licensing needs with the licensing regulator at Building Standards and Occupational Licensing (BSOL).
