Certificate III in Construction Waterproofing


CPC31411 Certificate III in Construction Waterproofing RPL

Why RPL your Certificate III in Construction Waterproofing?

You know how it goes — you finished school or changed industries and just started working in waterproofing without completing an apprenticeship. A couple of years later, you want an industry licence and realise that you need a qualification behind your back to be eligible.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) to obtain your Certificate III in Construction Waterproofing, may be a good choice for you to fast track your training. Provided you can demonstrate your prior skills, experience, and knowledge that you have acquired in the building and construction industry, you will then be assessed against the ASQA requirements for a given qualification. If you have any further questions relating to our waterproofing RPL program or regarding our tiling courses, please get in touch with us today to find out more.

At Capital Training Institute, our RPL building and construction program is built to recognise your years of hard work in your chosen trade.

  • It could be an educational requirement for your wall and floor tiling licence or your next step towards a higher-level construction position.
  • Get recognition for those years of work you have put into your trade.

If you’re interested in gaining your Certificate 3 in Construction Waterproofing and aren’t sure where to start, the team at Capital Training Institute are here to help.
