Building Supervisors plan, organise, and control construction projects by undertaking quality inspections and supervising staff and subcontractors. According to, the average salary for a Building Supervisor in Australia is $103K.  

The units within the Builder Open Class Site Supervisor (Queensland) course are implicit of the CPC60212 Advanced Diploma of Building and Construction (Management) qualification. This course will provide you with the knowledge and managerial skills to meet the technical qualifications for the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) Site Supervisor Licence. This includes learning how to:

  • Coordinate staff, contractors, and materials to ensure targets on projects are met
  • Prepare and administer council applications and building contracts
  • Supervise internal employees and monitoring subcontractors to ensure safety and technical specifications are adhered to

Depending on your years of experience in the workplace, industry or previous studies, you may be eligible to have your skills recognised through our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) program. This may potentially fast track your way to a formal qualification, save time, and months’ worth of education investment.
