Going for the Domestic Builders Licence is a daunting task to say the least!

Don from Licence to Build was personally recommended to me as a teacher and trainer and he taught me everything I needed to know for the VBA test and more. Don made learning both easy and enjoyable, showing me how to use the NCC and Australian Standards properly and thoroughly.

Not only did Don help me through the examination process, I’ve become a much better builder from his guidance.

My name is Michael and I can proudly say I’m now a Domestic Builder (Unlimited) thanks to Don Fraser from Licence to Build.

I originally began my registration training with another company but was unhappy with the teaching skills they had to offer. I’d heard about Licence to Build so I contacted Don and was invited to one of his classes – I was immediately hooked. The difference in teaching and knowledge was incredible. I signed up immediately and never looked back.

Before I started Don’s classes, getting my builders licence was a distant dream. But the amount of information I learned in Don’s classes changed everything. His knowledge of building and property development was astounding, not just in preparing me for my VBA licence, but in teaching me to become the best builder possible.

The way Don explains things and gets the message across is second to none. He simplifies all of the information, breaks it down and just makes learning so easy. Once again, a big thanks for making it all work for me!
