The qualification has core unit of competency requirements that cover common supervision and planning skills for the construction industry, as well as elective units common to a range of Certificate IV in Building and Construction qualifications.

Why do I need to do a Cert IV in Pool Construction, doesn’t Cert IV in Building and Construction cover me for building pools?
