Are you thinking about starting your own renovation business?


Now is your chance to grow your business capabilities or start a new business with a renovation licence.

More than ever homeowners are spending more time at home with plenty of time to plan and organise much needed renovations. 

According to Master Builders Australia Chief Economist Shane Garrett, “the pipeline of home renovations work in New South Wales is set to remain strong for a number of years to come. This is due to detached house building reaching its highest volume on record in NSW during the late 1980s, meaning that a very large number of houses in the state will come due for repairs, maintenance and major renovations jobs over the next few years.”

With Master Builders, you can learn the practical processes of coordinating renovation projects with our online tutorials and practical workshops. You can also gain the units of competency you need with Recognition of Prior Learning. Be on the pathway to a renovation licence.

We have three study options that you can fit into your already busy schedule:


Instead of rushing from work to class, you now have time to go home, settle in, grab a snack, then simply login to learn. Virtual classrooms are just like a real class except from the comfort of your own home. All you need is your laptop/tablet/computer, a quiet place, and speakers or headphones. Once you login to learn you feel connected to educators and colleagues, as well as having access to our learning resources, videos and more! You can then choose to attend the practical one-day workshop or provide us with video and photographic evidence to demonstrate your experience in fabricating and installing furniture. 


Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the process by which you can achieve a nationally recognised qualification, without the need to attend classes. You are assessed by providing us with evidence of the knowledge, skills and experience you have gained on the worksite. Best of all, you can provide demonstrations of your on-site practical tasks connecting by WhatsApp or FaceTime with one of our industry expert trainers.


Improve your existing renovating skills with the experts at the Master Builders purpose-built training facility. In just 4-days of attendance, you will learn the practical processes of coordinating renovation projects and how to achieve the best outcomes for your clients. During the 4-days of attendance, you will be assessed through knowledge questions, practical observations and a portfolio of evidence. Upon successful completion, you could be on your pathway to a renovation licence.
