DB-M Transition Pathway

By 2022, new laws mean a DB-Manager will be removed as a building practitioner.

For those registered with VBA as a DB-Manager give us a call and we can discuss various options with you to keep you in the building industry.

The main difference between a DB-M (Domestic Building Manager) and a Project Manager (Domestic) is more of a focus on management which has meant an increase in the qualification requirements. The qualification now needed is a Diploma.

The law is if you are engaging in building work (where more then one trade is involved) – for work valued over $10,000 you need to be a registered builder,

As a DB-M or Project Manager (Domestic), you are not allowed to contract with clients or tradespeople. Therefore, this is a limitation in your current role.

The VBA has announced these changes here.

At TIV, we have courses for you that allows DB-M to have various options.

Depending on your qualifications you could be eligible for government funding.

As of 30 June 2022 the DB-M will be removed as a building practitioner it is vital that you have your relevant qualifications done by then otherwise your registration as a DB-M will cease.
