Would someone who has just finished the 5 year architecture course (RMIT, Melb etc) and not done any IBL (industry based learning) have the necessary skills to complete a building application? Or would they need at least some IBL to garner enough on the job experience to complete such a document?
also, would someone who has completed (for example) the RMIT Building Design and Technology Diploma have these skills?
It would include items such as:
