Owner Builder TAS

Hello Owner Builder in Tasmania!

In Tasmania, it's mandatory to do an Owner Builder course AND a white card course. You must provide proof of both to your Building Surveyor.

The good news? We've done the research for you.

We critiqued 12 owner builder course providers across Australia and after a stringent selection process, we were super happy to partner with Absolute Education. If you want to know why, head to our main Course page and you'll find loads of reasons!


  • You can do both courses through Absolute Education.
  • The White Card course is available when you register for your OB course (at Step 4 – cost is $55.00).
  • Simply click on ‘Register Now' in the box below (it's free) to go straight to their registration page.
  • 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 $185.00 payable when you pass (psst, everyone passes!).


We run a quarterly draw where one lucky person wins a $100 Bunnings voucher.

All you need to do is use the code ‘OBC' at Step 4 in the registration process.

Absolute Education is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 91521) who makes doing an Owner Builder Course simple. All you need to do is click ‘Register Now' (it's free) create a username and password, login and start answering the questions! Best parts, you don't pay until you pass (you'll pass) and your certificate will be emailed to you upon completion (and once you've paid)!

A little extra…

Once you complete your Owner Builder course in Tas, you're ready to obtain your Owner Builder Permit. You can do this with the help of a Building Surveyor.

The key steps are:

  • Complete the Owner Builder Permit application form per the link below.
  • When you get the Owner Builder Permit, your surveyor will issue you with a Certificate of Likely Compliance.
  • Next step is to get a Building Permit from your local Council – you need your final plans, OB Permit and Certificate of Likely Compliance.
  • Check if you need a Plumbing Permit and Planning Permit from Council.
  • Finally, you'll need to provide your Surveyor with a Start Work Notification (refer government link below)
