In order to succeed in our online qualifications, our students are required to:

  • Be 18 years or older at the time of registration
  • Demonstrate the required level of competency in English language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skills

The required level of competency in English LLN skills for Diploma and Certificate IV qualifications is ACSF Level 3.

To ensure you have the ACSF skills necessary to commence study with us, you may be required to complete an LLN test if English is not your first language and you do not hold any nationally recognised Australian qualifications.
Upon enrolment, all students will also be assessed over time by their learning coach for their language, literacy and numeracy skills. Where these levels fall below the requisite ACSF standard for the qualification, the coach will advise the student of the remedial options open to them. This may involve additional support or withdrawal of enrolment and refund of fees paid.
Please refer to the relevant CAL Policies and the Student Handbook for full details of the entry-level requirements procedure.

While there is no formal prerequisite study required to enter this qualification, it is beneficial for students to have some relevant industry experience to assist with the learning application required for this course. This may have been obtained through formal and/or informal training, work experience and life experience.

The Modern Construction Manager

This course is designed to give you the skills needed to champion the construction industry, transitioning from working on the tools to eventually running the entire process from start to finish.

With the age pension soon to be increased to 67 years of age for those born after 1st January 1957, you need to formulate a plan now on how to get off the tools and into some project management related roles.
What if you’re reading this and you’re already in a project management role? What happens if your contract isn’t renewed and you need to drop back to being on the tools to make ends meet? At the end of the day you still have to have some kind of enjoyment with your career. However for many who are still on the tools, it’s just a daily grind where your opinion and insight don’t count for anything.

Getting off the tools and into a project management related role means that you’ll become more involved in the entire construction process; you’ll have a direct say and input in what happens throughout the cycle of the project. Think about where you want to be in the next 5 or 10 years, talk to those who are in the positions which you want and start researching some further study in how to increase your chances of getting into those off the tools construction roles.
