Futureproof your construction skills with our waterproofing course

26 Mar 2013

The current boom in residential housing construction means waterproofing skills are highly regarded.

However, it is not mandatory that registered building practitioners have a formal professional qualification in waterproofing; indeed, insurance companies are paying out millions of dollars for remedial work to buildings caused by the ingress of water into buildings resulting in substantial damage to the property. 

Melbourne Polytechnic Construction Waterproofing teacher Roeland Trietsch said there had been a continual problem with the correct procedure in the installation of waterproofing for shower and bath facilities and the new course was designed as skills gap training to meet the need in the building industry.

Melbourne Polytechnic can provide you with the skills you need to ensure you know the correct procedures to improve your opportunities in the industry through our Certificate III in Construction Waterproofing.
