Meet Omar – Diploma of Building and Construction (Building)

Now is the perfect time to start your own building business, just ask Omar!

Studying a diploma can help you to grow and take advantage of the rising demand in building and construction.

It’s important to understand why this level of qualification is significant. It ensures you have the knowledge and ability to handle the complex aspects when it comes to building and construction, and can set you up well to have your own business down the track. It’s also a great step towards getting your builders licence.

This is precisely what was on Mohammad Omar Babak’s mind when he decided to take on one of a Diploma in Building and Construction (Building) from Builders Academy Australia. He’s since had some incredible experiences in the program.

Do you need a diploma to start your own building business?

For Omar, time is essential, so studying was the last thing on his mind when he decided he wanted to start his own building company. However, Omar realised pretty fast that gaining the skills and knowledge required for all the different aspects of having your own business would be best achieved through a course.

As he was focusing on his own business goals, he was able to complete his Diploma in Building and Construction at Builders Academy Australia just last year.

Through this diploma course he honed his skills and increased his self-confidence which allowed him to run his business more effectively. From small legal aspects to completing jobs from start to finish without being overwhelmed, having a diploma under his belt made all the difference. Omar explains, “Yes, I had done one project, but once I did the diploma, it gave me a better sense of confidence for the next project.”

Completing the diploma had been such a great journey for Omar, and his hard work and dedication had paid off. Even more, he was awarded the title of ‘2021 Student of the Year’ by Builders Academy Australia, and he couldn’t be more proud.

Great things don’t just happen and this is something that Omar knows more than anyone else. It takes a lot of hard work but that’s what makes the reward all the better!

“It will be something that I’ll keep to heart for the rest of my life. Something when, when my kids are older, something they can look at and go, “You’ve done well with your life.”

Meet Omar

Hi, my name is Omar and I completed the Diploma of Building and Construction at BAA.

Why did you choose Builders Academy Australia?

I chose to study at Builders Academy Australia to become a licensed builder.

What was your motivation for undertaking the program?

My motivation for completing the course was to get my builder’s licence and become a one-stop shop with my current business.

The skills and knowledge that I learned in the diploma gave me the confidence to build a residential home from start to finish, and the small legal aspects of it as well. Yes, I had done one project, but once I did the diploma, it gave me that better sense of confidence for the next project.

What does it mean to be recognised as the 2021 Student of the Year?

To be recognised as the ‘2021 Student of the Year’ is an honour!

What impact will this award have on your life?

It will be something that I’ll keep to heart for the rest of my life. When my kids are older, it’s something they can look at and go, “Yeah, Dad. You’ve done well with your life.”
