香港建造業急速發展,各項大型工程逐步落實並展開,像於未來10年興建33萬個公營房屋單位、北部都會區、多條新鐵路系統及基礎建設等,這些工程將令建造業人才需求上升,尤其負責營造管理的崗位更是求才若渴。若年輕人有志投入其中,應如何鋪路?

所謂「萬丈高樓從地起」,扎實的基礎知識和技術對職業生涯發展十分重要。一般而言,有理科根底的人掌握營造管理相關的專業會較有優勢,加上大多數營造師皆擁有建築、工程或測量背景,因此有意入行的年輕人,不妨考慮從這些專業入手。另外,香港建造學院及職業訓練局等教育機構亦提供不同的建築營造課程,為學生投身建築項目的技術、督導及管理崗位作好準備。

筆者認為,除要按個人喜好選擇進修課程,還需了解課程的認受程度。舉例說,香港各類型建築工程或街道工程(政府工程或受豁免的工程除外)均須根據屋宇署發出之地盤監督作業守則,以及監工計劃書技術備忘錄進行規管,這些文件內訂明不同的建築工程或街道工程,需由「適任技術人員」(Technical Competent Persons, TCPs)負責監督或管理。

簡單來說,TCPs職級由T1至T5,T1一般為駐地盤現場的管理人員,而T4、T5為最高學歷及經驗的專業工程人員。不同課程所頒授的專業認可不一,很多從業員完成課程後才發現課程並不符合註冊制度內的某一級別,大呼走錯冤枉路。

因此,有志投身營造專業的年輕人,可參考有關註冊制度作為事業發展和進修的藍本,積極裝備自己,一步步考取或獲得各級資格,以符合行業法規要求,為營造事業發展鋪路。當然,建築及營造專業技術不斷進步,相關科技亦日新月異,即使投身專業後,亦應孜孜不倦自我增值,貫徹終身學習精神!
