Owner building

Owner builder course and providers

Before applying for an owner builder permit (PDF), you must complete an owner builder course. To be eligible, you need to be a person listed on the title, a company director (if the property is company-owned) or a leasee (if the property is leased).

In some cases, you may be entitled to apply for an exemption from the owner builder course (PDF). You should apply for the exemption before applying for your owner builder permit.

Course providers

Owner Builder Course Providers (PDF) are approved Registered Training Organisations that offer the owner builder course (see below).

The course delivery (classroom format or by correspondence) and course costs vary depending on the course provider. The owner builder permit application fee doesn’t include course costs.

The Owner Builder Study Guide (PDF) is a valuable resource for owner builders.
