Frequently Asked Questions

How can I obtain a certificate of Competency?

To obtain a certificate of competency in 12d Model software for your specific discipline, you will need to follow a few steps. Firstly, you should ensure that you have completed the requisite training for your particular field of expertise. Next, you will need to purchase a Proctored Exam through the Civil and Surveying Institute. This exam will test your proficiency in using 12d Model software, and successful completion of the exam will result in the granting of the certificate of competency. This certificate can then be used to demonstrate your competence and expertise to your current or potential employer.

How long does it take to complete the certificate program at the Civil and Surveying Institute?

If you are interested in completing a certificate program at the Civil and Surveying Institute, the length of time it takes to obtain your certificate will depend on the type of certificate you are pursuing.

For a Certificate of Attendance in your specific field, you can typically expect to complete the program within 1-3 days.

To receive a Certificate of Completion, the timeframe can range from 2 weeks to 6 months on average. The duration will depend on the particular discipline you are studying and the amount of time you can commit per week to complete the course successfully.

If your goal is to obtain a Certificate of Competency, you will need to pass a Proctored Exam, which typically takes 2-3 hours. However, it’s important to note that you must have a sufficient understanding of the subject matter prior to applying for the exam to earn the Certificate of Competency.

What is the recommended number of certificates to obtain out of the three available at the Civil and Surveying Institute?

The recommended number of certificates to obtain at the Civil and Surveying Institute depends on your level of expertise and professional goals.

If you are new to 12d Model software and have little knowledge, it is highly recommended to earn all three certificates: Certificate of Attendance, Certificate of Completion, and Certificate of Competency.

If you are already familiar with 12d Model software or want to enhance your skills, the Certificate of Attendance or the Certificate of Completion may be sufficient.

If you want to demonstrate your proficiency and knowledge to your employer or potential employers, then it is recommended to obtain the Certificate of Competency.

How long is a certfication valid for?

Certifications are typically valid for a specific period of time, usually ranging from one to five years. Since the infrastructure industry is constantly evolving, it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in your field. That’s why Civil and Surveying Institute certifications remain valid for three years only. This means that you’ll need to stay on top of your game and make the most of your certification within this time frame. After three years, you may need to renew your certification by taking a refresher course or passing an exam.

How much does certification with Civil and Surveying Institute cost?

For a Certificate of Attendance, the certificate itself is complementary. However, you will need to complete and pay for the Instructor-led online training, which may vary in price depending on the discipline you are studying. Typically, prices for the training range from $200 to $900 (AUD) Exc. GST.

For a Certificate of Completion, the certificate is also complementary, but you will need to successfully complete an appropriate SPOT course before obtaining the certificate. The price for SPOT courses typically ranges from $300 to $500 (AUD) Exc. GST.

For a Certificate of Competency, the cost is $300 (AUD) Exc. GST. However, it’s important to note that the cost of preparing for the exam to obtain the certificate is not included in this price. To prepare for the exam, we recommend attending our Instructor-led online or SPOT (Self Paced Online Training) courses, which may have varying costs depending on the course and discipline.
