This course is ideal for those individuals that want to work in business support roles for the Construction industry.

Building and Construction is a huge industry in New Zealand and whether a construction company is small or large ALL of them need good administration and bookkeeping support!

We all know that here in New Zealand we have some of the best tradies in the market. However, many small to medium construction businesses struggle when it comes to the administration, bookkeeping and tax side of their businesses.

Because of this, many tradies are on the lookout for good business support workers. However, many of them want an employee that not only understands admin and bookkeeping but also has a basic understanding of the principles and terminology used in construction.

So! This course will not only teach you about administration and bookkeeping, but it will also take you through building and construction processes, terminology and the basics of carpentry, electrical and plumbing.

So, whether your husband is operating his own business and needs help with “the books”, or you want to work for a commercial construction company in the office this course is the perfect place to start!
