This includes areas such residential/commercial drafting, architecture, town planning and local government. It complements and enhances VCE Visual Communications studies. This program will provide a skill set from the nationally recognised Certificate IV Residential
Drafting. Students who successfully complete this VET in Schools program will have the opportunity to move into the Advanced Diploma of Building Design (22268VIC) with acquired skills and knowledge that will enhance future studies.

The building design drafter may work on a wide range of building design projects, but always under the supervision and instruction of an appropriately licensed or accredited architect or building designer.
