The fundamental role of our training department is to help our members to run successful building and construction businesses. We understand that our members are often time-poor, since running a business of any size is challenging and maintaining work-life balance is critical. For that reason, we’ve increased the number of short courses we deliver to provide relevant training in locations closer to home.

‘Waterproofing in Construction’ is a new range of short courses by Master Builders Association of Victoria. Each three-hour session provides students with a practical, common-sense approach to utilising the Australian Standards and gaining a deeper understanding of the critical path for installing waterproofing systems. We offer four different sessions:

• Internal waterproofing – domestic wet areas
• External waterproofing – desks and planter boxes
• Below-ground waterproofing – barriers, components and drainage
• Waterproofing membrane selection – membranes, primers and sealants

In addition, we offer Building Information Modelling (BIM) – as a new short course designed to provide students with an introduction to this relatively new technology. BIM is a process that uses 3D modelling software to create and manage all aspects of a construction project; it is becoming increasingly popular due to its results in time and cost savings on construction projects. Students can learn more about BIM in a short three-hour workshop.

Keep in mind we offer a range of short courses and workshops to help you increase your productivity, expand your skill sets or improve occupational health and safety systems within your business. Examples of these include MS Project, Mental Health First Aid, CPR, Green Card, Non-Friable Asbestos Awareness and several others you can find at
