Benchmarks and Prescribed Qualifications

As per the October 2008 Main Task Group the PBIBC will collaborate with BC Housing in developing a recommendation to government for prescribed qualifications in education, training and experience required for both new and renewing Licensed Residential Builders of 1 to 4 units per building.

The PBIBC has recommended to government that qualifications for Licensed Residential Builders be prescribed in the following 10 Categories:

  • Business Planning and Management
  • Human Resource Planning and Management
  • Financial Planning and Management
  • Project Management and Supervision
  • Legal Issues on Housing
  • Building Codes
  • Construction Technology
  • Occupational Health and Safety
  • Customer Service
  • Communications

The PBIBC (Industry) will establish and recommend the ‘benchmarks’ for education, training and experience needed by a new applicant to satisfy the ‘Prescribed Qualifications.’

RESIDENTIAL HOME BUILDER REFERS ONLY TO THOSE IN THE BUSINESS OF BUILDING AND/OR SELLING RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS THAT CONTAIN FROM 1 TO A MAXIMUM OF 4 NEW HOMES PER BUILDING
