Learning Outcomes

This qualification is designed for managers working in Civil Construction who perform tasks that are broad, specialised, complex and technical and include strategic areas and initiating activities. They are responsible for the establishment of the site management systems, plans and policies and are required to demonstrate self-directed application of theoretical and technical knowledge and initiate solutions to technical problems or management requirements.


Transformed offers flexible training and assessment options which allow participants to fit in their training program around work and other commitments. Trsformed offers three flexible learning pathways to enable participants to complete this qualification. They are

1. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)/Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) Pathway – this pathway involves assessment only, assessing evidence of existing skills and knowledge against the competency standards.

2. Combined Coaching/RPL Pathway – this pathway provides for an up-front assessment of existing skills and knowledge, where it is anticipated that some or all competencies are likely to be achieved via the standard RPL process. An individual coaching plan is developed and a number of one-onone coaching sessions are scheduled to help address any identified skills gaps. Participants may also need to complete additional assessment activities to supplement their coaching.

3. Distance learning / E-Learning – this pathway provides an interactive online virtual learning environment to train and support participants throughout the duration of their course. The Transformed team will keep in touch every step of the way and guide participants either through training literature, videos and trainer / assessor contact. There are online staff rooms so that learners can meet with their trainers to discuss and share work.

Please discuss course delivery options with a Transformed team member. Face to face delivery is available within organisations for groups of 8 or more.
