This qualification reflects the role of drafters who apply their skills to diverse building design projects. Practitioners further develop their drafting expertise and design capabilities to design, draft and document plans, specifications and documentation for buildings of all classifications, as defined in the NCC, to a maximum floor area of 2,000 m2, excluding those of Type A construction.
Practice at this level is underpinned by the ability to analyse and synthesise information from a range of sources to generate design solutions. Practitioners work without supervision and may specialise in residential, commercial, public or industrial projects including new buildings and renovations.
Licensing requirements apply to building design in some states or territories. For further information, check with the relevant regulatory authority.
