Builder Registration Victoria – VBA (Victorian Building Authority)
The VBA is the Authority in Victoria that controls Builder Registration and the process for each Builder is similar for all the classes although to get your DBU and DBL Registrations you will need to demonstrate experience and skills you have in relation to the class of Builder Registration you are applying for.
For example, if you are wanting to apply for a Domestic Builder Unlimited Registration then you would want to have a work history in the industry that demonstrates experience in building and managing work involving the construction of homes and work from the ground up. If your experience in renovating bathrooms then you would not satisfy the VBA for experience to apply for a DBU and this would mean that a better option for your Builder Licence would be DB-L Bathroom, Kitchens, Laundry Renovation.
The Team at Builders Licence Made Easy works with many different people to achieve Builder Registration in Victoria whether you’re applying for DBU or any of the varied DBL Licences. Builder Licence classes require specific training to ensure that you have the detailed knowledge to apply for the Licence class of your choice. This is not a one size fits all option and we work with hundreds of people in all the Builder Registration Classes to make sure you’re ready to go to the VBA with confidence.
Steps To Get a Builder Licence
Step 1: Application
Step 2: Examination and Question and Answer Tests
Step 3: Interview with an Assessor
Step 1: Application to the VBA
This involves completing the Application Form along with a Folder of Portfolio Documents demonstrating your experience and knowledge of the work you have done. Your Application and Portfolio must satisfy the VBA and validate you have the work history to be accepted for the Builder Registration class you are applying for.
Our Team can help you by preparing your entire Application and with our long experience in dealing with Applications for the VBA we can help you with the most efficient and “painless” way to fast track your start to getting you Builders Registration. In just 10 days we can put your Application together and you could be on your way to applying for your Builder Registration.
Step 2: Examination and Question and Answer Tests
Once the VBA has accepted your Application then you will receive an email letting you know the next step in the process where they will give you options for a date to sit the testing – (computer based examination and plan test exercises).
This will generally go for 2 -2.5 hours and a sound knowledge of Australian Standards, the NCC and Legislation is extremely important to get through this step.
We work with over 400 people a year to prepare for their Builder Registration and the piece of advise we offer is – its not how good you are on site BUT whether you understand what the VBA want YOU TO KNOW that will get you the Licence you deserve. We run training programs teaching people NOT how to build but how to prepare for the VBA and to pass with the right information to get your Builders Licence.
Step 3: Interview with the VBA Assessor
Once you pass the testing then you will be contacted either by phone or email to organise a time to have your one on one interview assessment.
The interviews generally go for 1 to 2.5 hours.
The whole interview is designed to establish whether you have the ability and knowledge in the Builder Registration Class that you are applying for. The interview is conducted by an Assessor from the VBA whose aim is to decide that you are a fit and proper person to get your Builders Licence. The interview is not a chat or a casual discussion. The Assessor will over the Interview be throwing many different questions that give you the opportunity to show that you have sufficient knowledge and expertise to be granted your Registration.
Many people in Building and Construction are not experienced with going for interviews, in fact, many people we deal with have never been for an interview so it is very important that you prepare for this part of the process to get the best results.
We work with literally thousands of people who we coach to get the best out of themselves, so they go to their interview with confidence avoiding nerves and being ready for whatever the Assessor throws at them.
