What are the Building and Construction Professions?
Other than builders there a number of professions in the building and construction industry. The one thing they all have in common is that you require a university degree to be licensed or registered. The professions include:
- Building Surveyors
- Project managers
- Quantity Surveyors
- Engineers (civil, electrical, mechanical and structural)
- Architects and Building Designers
To operate as building professional in Tasmania you must be licenced and that requires both a qualification and experience.
You can do this either by starting in the workforce, perhaps as an apprentice doing a Certificate 3, and studying part time. Or you can go straight to university and find work to gain experience after graduating.
