NSW Owner Builder Course

What is the Owner Builder Course?

Individuals who seek to become an Owner Builder in Western Australia must complete a Western Australian Owner Builder Course that covers the main duties and responsibilities of being an owner builder.

In addition to the Owner Builder Course, you will also need to complete a White Card Course (known as the unit CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry), and this is a very basic safety course for all individuals who carry out work in the construction industry.  Every owner builder in WA must also hold a White Card.

If you already hold a White Card that has been issued from any state, you will be able to commence our Owner Builder Course without again having to complete the White Card Course.

If you do not currently hold a White Card, you will first need to complete the White Card Course with us before you can commence the Owner Builder Course.

The Owner Builder Course itself consists of two main topics:

  • Basics of Owner Building (including general Statutory Requirements)
  • Drawings and Estimating

You can complete our Owner Builder Course and the White Card Course with us through our advanced online training portal.

We have helped thousands of home owners become Owner Builders since 2010, and our IT consultants have designed our online course software to ensure that it is the most user friendly on the training market.  To register for our Owner Builder Course, CLICK HERE

Applying for an Owner Builder Permit
After you have finished our Owner Builder Course, you will need to apply to the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety for an Owner Builder Permit. In addition to the application form, you will also need to present copies of any certificates we issue you.
