Tradies will need to complete two business units prior to applying, one that covers off legal issues, the other on small business finance. We offer a course that meets the State Governments requirements, click here to see dates and make a booking.

Along with these units you also need to provide evidence of industry experience, such as apprenticeship papers, letters from employers if an apprenticeship wasn’t completed, short courses or testimonials.
