Owner Builder SA

Hello Owner Builder in South Australia!

Did you know the rules to becoming an Owner Builder in South Australia are different compared to other states?

In SA, it’s not compulsory to complete an Owner Builder course.

Say what? I know, we're kinda surprised as well.

However. As an owner builder, you are required by law to meet the same legislative requirements relating to building work as licensed builders. That's massive.

Because we're big on knowledge, we think it's critical to learn as much as you can when it comes to a challenging process such as building (as a non-builder).

We pretty much think it's a small investment.

And the best part?

We've done the research for you and critiqued 12 owner builder course providers across Australia. We're super excited to announce our partnership with (drum roll)……..Absolute Education, a specialist in the industry.

Here's what we like about Absolute Education and why we've partnered:

  • they're known for their expertise in delivering solutions to the Australian Owner Builder and Construction industry for over 14 years (that's a big tick)
  • they're super professional (another tick)
  • they offer a White Card course (one-stop shop) and you need it to comply with Workcover regulation (that's a serious point)
  • the OB course is super easy to access online and by correspondence (tick, tick)
  • you can take as long as you need to complete the course (because life's busy)
  • your certificate is emailed within 24 hours (love instant gratification)
  • you get unlimited phone access (because sometimes we need to speak to a real person)
  • they give away lots of FREE stuff (who doesn't love a gift with purchase)
  • you get to sit a FREE practice exam (thank you)
  • run by people who know the building game (that's called credibility)
  • they're fully compliant with the regulatory board as an approved training organisation (again, credible)
  • AND, the price is right! (phew)


Here's what you need to know and do:

  • You must remember you need a White Card (Workcover regulation) and you need it PRIOR to completing the OB course.
  • But don't worry, you can select the White Card course when you register for your OB course (at Step 4 – cost is $55).
  • To get started, click on ‘Register Now' (registration is free) in the box below to go straight to their registration page (it's a simple step-by-step process)
  • Confirmation of your registration with your user name and password will be sent to you by text and email once registration is complete
  • OB Course cost is $115.00 payable when you pass (psst, everyone passes!)


Oh come on, who isn't!?

If you enter the ‘Offer Code' OBC at the bottom of Step 4 in the registration process (under Special Promotional Code), you'll automatically go into the draw to win a $200 Bunnings voucher.

Yep, if you win, there's your course cost back (and then some).

By entering the Offer Code OBC means you give us the okay to contact you (only if you win) via the email address you provide.

Note – Registrations completed in the month of January (across Australia) are eligible for the bonus draw.

So what are you waiting for?
