The Certificate III in Construction Waterproofing at Melbourne Polytechnic is a hands-on course that caters to both experienced tradespeople and students new to construction. Highly skilled and qualified waterproofers are in high demand as water leaks are one of the most commonly reported issues in finished buildings. Waterproofing in commercial buildings alone is predicted to generate strong demand over the next five years. Have a competitive edge by gaining expertise in a crucial niche of the construction industry.
You’ll practice core skills for the construction industry, as well as specialised techniques for internal, external, below-ground and remedial waterproofing. Learn how to prevent water and dampness penetrating building walls with hands-on training in our dedicated construction training facilities, using the latest industry technologies. At Melbourne Polytechnic, our industry-experienced teachers guide you through every step in a supportive learning environment. This combination of support and real-world experience will help you feel confident putting your new skills into practice in any domestic and commercial building site.
When you graduate you’ll have developed a deep understanding of waterproofing techniques and how to apply them in-line with Australian standards, manufacturers’ specifications and industry best practice. You can undertake a range of waterproofing jobs in the residential, commercial or industrial construction industry as either a specialist or in addition to your general construction practice.
Register for content-packed seminars on remote learning, job-readiness, and how you can reskill in a time of crisis. Chart your career in conversation with our panel of teachers, students, alumni, and industry professionals.
Day and evening classes offered.
You must complete 19 units (14 compulsory and five electives) to achieve this qualification. A maximum of two of the five required elective units may be substituted by selecting relevant units of competency from any Certificate III or Certificate IV construction qualification in another endorsed training package (eg. if you are a tiler or carpenter by trade, you can substitute two of the electives from the tiling or carpentry package by showing competency (RPL) in both electives).
