Skills maintenance

What is skills maintenance?

Every two years, all LBPs must complete a set of skills maintenance activities. This requirement is one of the responsibilities of being an LBP. Skills maintenance ensures that you as an LBP maintain current competence and knowledge in the building and construction industry.

The Registrar of the LBP scheme has set the skills maintenance programme for LBPs in order to assess competency. Ensuring that you undertake skills maintenance gives the Registrar confidence that the cohort of LBPs have maintained the knowledge and skills against the minimum licensing standards.

Some changes to the skills maintenance programme came into full effect from 2 November 2017. Read more in the following guidance documents:
