Building Consent Officers
This survey will assess whether you have the knowledge and experience to benefit from for the Assessment of Prior Learning (APL) process, offered through Capable NZ. APL is a service provided for individuals who have experience and existing knowledge in areas they have worked in, which can be measured against, and count towards formal academic qualifications.
In order to apply for APL, you should have at least five years experience in the role of Building Official and should have developed a broad range of skills which we will ask you about shortly.These qualifications require building officials to be multi-skilled. However if you have experience in only one of the disciplines of processing or inspection, and you have the support of your manager, we can help you through the qualification pathway.
Please note, the Capable NZ programme is for people currently working in a Building Consent Authority or an organisation that provides building consent services, and are personally providing these services in some capacity. If you are not currently in this working environment you should contact the Building Officials Institute of New Zealand to discuss training and development options.
