About National Trade Licensing

National Trade Licensing is run by Sam Cottell who is a previous Licensing Manager in South Australia. He handles SA builders construction applications, interview preparation training, compliance and specialist advice to all builders.

Due to overwhelming client demand, Sam then expanded nationally and now helps applicants from NSW and QLD obtain their builders licence.

National Trade Licensing strategically does not align with industry bodies so you can be confident we won’t attempt to up-sell training courses that aren’t relevant to you passing the technical interview.

We are unique in industry because each client is assessed on a case-by-case basis to ensure the best outcome for a builders licence at an affordable price.


Why Experience Matters


Tailored Results

Knowing what to expect with licensing means we can tailor builders conditions to your exact needs.


Realistic Advice, Without The Up-Sell

The right licensing advice at the start avoids problems and extra costs down the track. Avoid the up-sell and reduce your fail rate. 


Technical Interview Knowledge

Strong understanding of the interview process. We constantly receive feedback from customers about the current interview process. We pass this knowledge onto you.

“Every builder gains experience in different ways. Sometimes it doesn’t fit the mould but it’s still relevant experience. That’s why I created National Trade Licensing – to give builders a licensing option they didn’t have before.”
