Residential Technical Interview SA Preparation

2 hours | Face-to-Face Preparation | Previous Licensing Manager

Approximately 40% of builders who sit the Residential Technical Interview SA test fail first time. They also lose their application fee (between $196 – $410).

When applicants are ready to sit the residential builders technical interview, they generally experience the following issues:


               – Hours searching the internet for residential technical interview SA preparation materials and information


               – Being sent a generic Schedule 2 Registration Performance Criteria from CBS and wondering where to start


               – Confused on what specific areas to study for the SA residential builders technical interview.


SA Trade Licensing can walk you through the entire Residential Construction Technical Interview in 2 hours.

The cost is $275 (inc. GST) – paid online via booking.

The preparation session will occur at our Pirie Street, Adelaide CBD office.

This preparation also includes the builders conditions of Alterations, Renovations and Additions.

We are a South Australian based company run by an ex-CBS licensing Manager with up-to-date practical technical interview information.
