Yes. In New South Wales, you must have a licence to demolish most buildings, structures and installations.

Once you’ve completed your demolition supervisor course and your licence application is approved by Safework , your demolition supervisor licence will be valid for two years.

No. But you must submit a renewal application to SafeWork NSW before  the expiry date to keep your licence active.

Demolition work is hazardous and considered to be a high-risk field. Becoming a demolition supervisor means you will be responsible for the safety of yourself and a team of workers. Since you will be managing a team, you may need to learn or brush up on your management skills. 

Being an effective and clear communicator is also important, as you will need to streamline communication between other departments and managers.
