Keeping records of restricted building work - we can help!
We know it’s tough to keep up with all the paperwork required these days, so to give you a hand we’ve produced a triplicate Record of Work book with three copies of the memorandum forms for your job details – one for the homeowner, one for the council and one for you to keep. Each book holds up to 25 jobs with the colour coded forms.
Pick one up at your local PlaceMakers branch today!
Who should attend the Skills Maintenance Seminars?
All Licensed Building Practitioners and those who have applied for a license. The session is for all license classes including sub-trades e.g. Brick & Block Layers/Roofers/Plasterers.
What if I haven't got my license yet?
If you have applied for your license or are still thinking about becoming licensed, you are still welcome to attend the PlaceMakers Skills Maintenance seminars, however you must currently hold your license to gain the LBP Skills Maintenance points.
How many LBP points do I earn for attending a PlaceMakers Skills Maintenance Seminar?
Each seminar is approximately two hours long. Every hour of educational learning is equal to 1 LBP point towards your Skills Maintenance requirements.
View the LBP Skills Maintenance guidance and how points can be earned.
Can I earn additional LBP points through PlaceMakers?
You can earn 1 LBP point by reading our ‘Under Construction’ trade publication and answering the LBP quiz questions. The printed version is published every two months and available for pick-up at your local PlaceMakers branch. You can tear off the LBP proof of learning (found towards the back of the publication) and submit this to MBIE.
Under Construction content is also available online, allowing you to submit your quiz questions (and print or download them for MBIE). You can view all your completed vs incomplete quizzes.
We include elective as well as mandatory Codewords from MBIE.
