The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) provides resources for practitioners to better understand and competently use the National Construction Code (NCC), free for download from our resource library

Topics include energy efficiency, fire safety, disability access, WaterMark and more. Resources are available in many digital formats including comprehensive handbooks, advisory notes, infographics, calculators and YouTube clips. For introductory information about the NCC, the NCC Essentials series provides information about the NCC and how to practically apply it.

For educators looking for teaching tools, the ABCB has recently updated NCC Tutor. NCC Tutor comprises interactive modules for educators teaching building and plumbing related qualifications at the Certificate IV and Diploma level.

Enhanced education

This new initiative responds to the Building Confidence report, delivering targeted online CPD courses and curriculum input about the NCC (NCC CPD). The courses aim to provide a nationally consistent approach with possible links to practitioner registration and/or licencing requirements. Curriculum input aims to improve entry-level knowledge of the NCC in the higher education and VET sectors.
