Getting your builders licence

Builders licence application made easy with Builders Academy Mentoring Program!

Do you require assistance and guidance preparing for the Application for Registration with the Victorian Building Authority (VBA)? It can be a very complicated and thorough process, requiring substantial attention to detail.  The VBA requires builder’s registration applicants to have the skills, knowledge and experience to apply for registration as a building practitioner. This involves filling in a lot of documents that require a lot of attention to detail.

If you’re wondering how to get a builders licence or registration, as part of our course we are now providing assistance with this process. Find out more here.
