About 101 Builder and the Owner Builder Course

Can I get a permit after completing my owner-builder course?

Instead of a permit, you will get a letter for submission alongside an application for a development approval.

What does owner-builder work mean?

  • Any work involving the building, repair, alteration, or addition to a house is an owner-builder work.
  • Moreover, the work must comply with the following requirements:
    • The market value of the work is more than $10,000
    • The structure constructed is a single-dwelling house, or a secondary dwelling
    • The work needs a development approval within the scope of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act of 1979 (Part 4)

White Card

Aside from the white card, what other material will I get as proof of passing the course?

In addition to the white card, a Statement of Attainment will also be sent to you through email. Make sure you typed the correct email address during your registration.

When can I expect my white card?

As soon as you pass your white card course and after providing the necessary document requirements, your white card will be mailed to your given address immediately. Make sure you have placed the correct address in your details.

Does a white card have an expiration date?

Yes, if you haven’t done any construction work within two years of your training, then your white card may become void. You will have to take the course again to be certified.
