Building Design & Construction

Building Design & Construction

Our building design and construction courses are highly regarded in the building industry. They’re designed to give you the practical skills, knowledge and qualifications to work at para-professional level in residential and commercial construction.

This means you can register with the Building Practitioners Board in Victoria, and work alongside and assist other building and design professionals at higher levels.

Our strong partnerships with organisations such as City of Greater Geelong give you the opportunity to work on live projects throughout the region. You are also exposed to international study experiences through our study tour program.
