CPC50210 Building and Construction Projects Management

Question:

To support the role of the builder in being able to produce construction industry documentation, students have access to a professional intranet that provides a simulated building company, RB Holdings. RB Holdings functions as a workplace environment where project-based assessments can be undertaken using industry standard documentation, plans, activities, responsibilities and procedures. The RB Holdings business structure allows simulation of work environments such as, but not limited to, design offices, site offices and construction sites.  RB Holdings provides students with relevant documentation that is to industry standard that allows students to experience a professional simulation of a construction office environment. RB Holdings is a fictitious organisation that has been created purely for educational purposes. RB Holdings materials are accessed via a secure website that is copyright of © TAFE NSW.
