The Building (Minor Works) Regulation Cap.123N was passed in 2009 after almost 5 years of consultation with the industry and debate in the LEGCO. Numerous revisions were made during that period in response to input from stakeholders in particular the 'Minor Works Contractors Registration Concern Group' comprising 22 organizations including your Federation being an active member. The implementation date is yet to be determined while training to prepare contractors/individuals for registration is being conducted. Like all new registration exercises, turbulence can be expected in the initial stage.

One common misunderstanding being heard from contractors is - extra restriction on their current practice, which is NOT the case. A workshop is now scheduled on :

17 May 2010 Monday, at 4:30 pm, in the conference room of HKFEMC

to brief members on this Regulation which affects mainly the P&D and HVAC disciplines as far as our E&M trade is concerned. However, all others are welcome.

CICTA runs 1 class each year (now considering expansion to 2 classes), producing about 30 trainees. The next batch will be available mid July, this month. Students are usually of F5 standard, not necessarily with working experience. The short course lasts for 70 full days, covering a wide range of construction and drafting related topics. They have the basics but of course don't expect them to be readily skilled. Further on job training is a must for them to be productive. With serious shortage of draftsmen in our industry, these graduates can certainly help to quench.

The syllabus and recruitment application form are attached. Be free to contact CICTA directly.
