Whatever class you are applying for, there is an expectation that you are knowledgeable on the work you undertake. You will also be expected to know how all aspects of your business is run from the financial side of things right through to the scope of work for each job you do. As Registered Building Practitioners are the professionals in their trade it is only fitting that you know what you are doing.
The Board are keen to get professionals registered. They don't want the cowboys out there undercutting and doing sloppy work either and while they don't expect you to know everything off the top of your head, they do expect that you will know where to get the information that you need.
Applicants will be required to undertake the following Assessment process:
(1) Sit a computer based closed book examination (multiple choice format)
(2) A face-to-face interview with an Accredited Competency Assessor
