Why you need builders CPD points

Anybody with a building or pool building license including both individuals and the personnel of companies has to do CPD.

CPD ensures that builders keep up to date with industry information, including safety, new products, systems and technologies and legal responsibilities. This benefits both you and your customers helps keep legal disputes to a minimum.

Even builders who only work part time and want to keep their building license must maintain their CPD points. The only way you can be exempt from CPD are when serious illness or injury prevent you from being able to take on the courses and this is considered on a case-by-case basis.

Your CPD Obligations for your Builders License

Fair Trading doesn't keep records of your CPD points, so the onus is on you to keep a diary record of your CPD activities, along with certificates you receive. You are required to keep these for 3 license periods and produce them if you're audited by Fair Trading.

Without the required CPD points, you won't be able to renew your license. Under the Home Building Act, CPD must be completed before approval of any licence or certificate. Fair Trading will refuse your application until you have completed the necessary CPD points.

If you have falsely claimed to have CPD points when you renew your license, Fair Trading may cancel it and in some circumstances even take disciplinary action against you. It's a criminal offence to deliberately make a false of misleading statement on your application for renewal or restoration of your licence or certificate.
