Summary of development

This project is developing a skill set in BIM awareness for the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package. BIM is an emerging technology within the construction industry and will be a requirement across many occupations, making a micro-credential in BIM awareness an essential component of the training package. Other training packages that cover occupations across the built environment will also be able to import this skill set as a means of upskilling or continuous professional development.

A Technical Advisory Group has been formed to guide the development of this skill set. Representatives of the construction industry are encouraged to participate further to ensure that the industry’s objectives for workers undertaking this skill set are met.

Once endorsed, the units of competency will be made available to industry as elective units within the CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction qualification.

The Case for Endorsement will be submitted for the AISC meeting in October 2020.

Project status

The validation draft of BIM training products for the construction industry is now available for final stakeholder consideration. We are seeking feedback to confirm that the content of the proposed units of competency meets industry needs. The project is being guided by a Technical Advisory Group which has considered the stakeholder feedback received to date and has incorporated that feedback, where appropriate, into the draft units of competency. 
  
There are three units of competency which will be presented as a BIM awareness skill set.

  • CPCBIM4001 Plan building or construction work to comply with BIM project requirements
  • CPCBIM4002 Use BIM processes to carry out building or construction work
  • CPCBIM4003 Finalise building or construction work to comply with BIM project requirements

The units can be downloaded below.

A webinar has also been scheduled for 2.00pm (Eastern Standard Time) on Wednesday, 8 July 2020 to give stakeholders an opportunity to discuss the proposed units of competency. Register here for that event.

Please let your networks know that this project is reaching finalisation and that feedback is welcomed. You can provide feedback through the link below by COB Thursday, 9 July 2020.
