Course Overview

This course is designed to develop the generic skills and knowledge used by project managers, construction managers, estimating managers and other senior construction professionals involved with the management of low to medium rise residential and commercial building projects.

Simulation Learning Component

Master Builders have now incorporated an exciting session at our state-of-the-art Building Leadership Simulation Centre (BLSC) into this 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 assessment environment is unique to Master Builders, as the BLSC facility is one of only three centres of this type in the world.

Mode of Delivery

This course is delivered through a blended model. This includes attending both face-to-face classes and simulated scenarios.

The course is delivered over 48 weeks which includes the equivalent of 27 days face to face attendance. It is expected that learners will need to allow on average 24 hours per week to compete training and assessment tasks to attain this qualification.

The course includes assessment workshops and a simulation session held at the Building Leadership Simulation Centre. There are 19 non attendance weeks that do not require face to face attendance. These are included to allow learners time to undertake pre-reading activities, structured independent learning and assessments (including a major project).

  • Develop, implement and monitor operational plans within broader organisational strategic plans

“Great course covering all aspects of the construction industry. Lewis was fantastic throughout and happy to share his knowledge and experiences within the industry. I am confident this course has provided me with further knowledge and skills to enhance my career.” – 2016

Ari Hrambanis, Henley Properties Group

“Great course, Lewis Derrico is a brilliant teacher” – 2015

Sebastian Pelletti, Carnegie Constructions

“MBAV was professional from the start to finish. Lewis Derrico, Neil O Connor and the other lecturers were excellent in relating the theory to the practical application of the workplace environment. The small group of students were encouraged to share their experiences, during our class activities in the face to face tuition, which was also very good.

Having now completed the Cert 4 in Building and Construction, as well as the Diploma, I can highly recommend MBAV as a superior training organisation to anyone looking to further their studies and education.” – 2015
