Building Design students celebrated their graduation on Wednesday 14 February 2018. The ceremony was held for students who finished their Certificate IV in Building Design Drafting and Advanced Diploma of Building Design (Architectural) qualifications.

Graham Hart, General Manager of Education and Training, inaugurated the ceremony with a speech in which he congratulated the recent graduates for the work done and the commitment made throughout the course.

The students proudly received their certificates, which is not only the result of their efforts during their studies but also the first step to an exciting and creative career. 

Throughout the past year, Certificate IV graduates acquired the skills and the technical knowledge involved in the three main aspects of the building design profession: codes and standards, construction methods and documentation drafting. This qualification will allow them to work under the supervision of an established Building Designer or an Architect and assist them in the design of all components in the construction of residential, commercial and/or industrial buildings.

On the other hand, Advanced Diploma students extended the skills acquired in the Certificate IV to areas such as risk and project management, extended teamwork, presentation skills and decision making, to name a few. With the indispensable experience under their belt and upon completion of the course, these graduates can register to practice on their own and employ other building designers or graduates to work for them. They will become the decision makers, being able to sign off plans.

The strong connection between our teachers and the industry has allowed the recent graduates to gain the skills and the experience needed to work in the real world.   

We wish them a bright and successful future!
