Apply for a licence
Whatever licence you apply for, you need to meet a few requirements. We want to know about your qualifications, experience and how you run your business. If you don’t have a formal qualification, you can get your skills recognised and we provide full details about where you can go to either complete a course or begin the process to get recognition.
There are a few more steps to complete if you live overseas but want to work in Queensland as a builder or contractor, as you may need to get your international qualification recognised. If you are an interstate licensee, we can usually give you an equivalent licence – it is just a matter of completing a short form. See Moving from interstate or overseas to get all the information.
