You are invited to learn the specs of specification at Getting Down to Specifics: The Fine Art of Specification Writing, a CPD short course that will give you a rich overview regarding who should complete this pivotal course and why.

When: 9th March 2021

Time: 12:30 – 1:30pm AEDT

Upon completion of this preparatory course, you will be able to determine if you have attained the skill level needed to take on the challenge of completing the course in question, Unit CPCCBC4015: Prepare specifications for all construction works.

You will have a good understanding of the skills you will learn through this course, and how these skills will be useful to you throughout the course of your professional career as you evolve from the providing of a drafting service to your clients to providing a design service—one in which the expected, desired outcome is not achieved by chance, but because of the solid and professionally prepared documentation you have provided to the tenderers/ builders.

Going into this course, you may find yourself faced with the question, “Why do I need to learn to write a specification?”


Specification has been deemed to be a required core skill by the building design industry.

In the latest release of official training packages for the education of building designers, the unit CPCCBC4015 has become a core unit in the course of study required to achieve the Diploma of Building Design (CPP50921).

Therefore, anyone who seeks to enrol in the Advanced Diploma of Building Design (CPP60421) course will need to study this unit first—mastering the skill of specification before moving forward with their studies.


You will gain the power to produce a more accurate and more infinitely complete set of documents as a service to your client.

As you move from drafting to designing more highly designed and detailed buildings, the specification writing tool will allow you to provide more and better information to tenderers/ builders.

You will learn how to:

  • Create a Scope of Works
  • Create Conditions of Contract
  • Prepare a Preliminaries document
  • Create Schedules
  • Specify Selections
  • Nominate Hold Points

Let’s get specific!
