Had my own successful building business in the UK and always built to a high standard. But regulations and the so called Builders ticket say I'm not qualified! Yet I can build a house (Bricklayer) only for a company that has a ticket! So what is the point of the ticket? Should be regulated by an independent organisation for high standards of build like in the Uk.

Michael I had the same issues. Also a bricklayer from the UK. I have my builders registration now. Contact me on if I can help you in anyway

Everyone in Western Australia should have one body or group to take action against con-men and i recommend the group on Facebook SHONKY BUILDERS WA. The so called system set up to protect consumers is ONLY protecting builders. And EVERYBODY KNOWS.

Shonky builders wa Facebook is just a publicity stunt by a con-man. Be careful of this person he is trying to get into politics and using Facebook to drive his seat.

Michael Davies is 100% correct, the method of registration in WA is completely flawed. The emphasis is too much on 'site experience' (eg laying bricks) whilst ignoring the importance of project management and business acumen.
