WA Owner-Builder Course

DOES THIS COURSE MEET THE WA BUILDING SERVICES BOARD REQUIREMENTS?

Yes it does. We have been delivering online training for WA owner-builders and requisite indemnity insurance since 2015.

If the value of work (labour and materials, Inc. GST) exceeds $20,000, you MUST provide evidence (OUR Certificate) and obtain a White card and submit to the Building Services Board for approval and then a building permit from your Local government.

WorkSafe WA require all its owner builders to hold a current General Induction Card (white-card). You can complete this online with ABE Education for $39.
 
If you sell your owner builder built house within 7 years of completion you must put in place Home indemnity insurance, which we also offer along with Contract Works insurance.
