Low Rise Contract Administration

Designed for

Low Rise Contract Administration is for builders, contract administrators, site managers, foremen, construction managers and other building practitioners involved with the management of small-to-medium-sized building businesses as well as the planning of onsite construction work.

An Accelerated Course

This is an accelerated course designed for people who have experience in the building and construction sector. We strongly recommend that you have at least three years work experience in the industry before undertaking this course.

Course overview

Planning for and supervising onsite construction work requires organisational skills, meticulous record keeping and knowledge of regulatory and local body requirements. This cluster explores these topics as well as scheduling of labour and materials, personnel site
responsibilities, application of quality management systems, purchasing and record flow, and the preparation and submission of condition reports.

Simulation Learning Component

Master Builders have now incorporated an exciting session at our state-of-the-art Building Leadership Simulation Centre (BLSC) into this short course. You’ll be able to practice some of the skills learnt in this course, first hand in a simulated workplace environment, which has been proven to be one of the most effective ways to learn new skills. The technology and learning methods used in this facility are so realistic that you will feel like you are actually on a real construction site. This realistic style of learning is unique to Master Builders, as the BLSC facility is one of only three centres of this type in the world. (Group 254 onward will no longer contain the Simulated Learning Component).
