There are currently two identified pathways in Victoria to becoming a municipal building surveyor.

1. Professional Pathway

To become a registered Building Surveyor – Unlimited, applicants must complete the degree in Building Surveying offered by Victoria University (AQF level 7). This is the only course currently on offer that equips graduates to be registered and employed as Municipal Building Surveyors in Victoria.

2. Para-Pathway (through existing VET / TAFE courses)

An alternative pathway is the Advanced Diploma of Building Surveying (AQF level 6). Graduates of the Advanced Diploma can qualify and work as level 2 building surveyors and can undertake further study if they wish to become a registered Building Surveyor – Unlimited. This pathway is generally targeted at building trades, mature age applicants not wanting to undertake a university degree or people who cannot fulfill the academic requirements for university entry.

Advanced Diploma is offered by:

  • CPD Training – confirmed offering mid-year intake, solely online delivery.
  • Melbourne Polytechnic
  • Federation TAFE
  • Victoria University Polytechnic – not offerring mid-year intake.
