On completion, students are awarded a nationally recognised apprenticeship qualification. In this hands-on 28 week course, students spend one day a week preparing for employment by learning work-specific skills in a simulated work environment that meets the needs of the carpentry and joinery industry. Students must demonstrate competency in seven units covering the knowledge and skills typical of those performed by apprenticeships in the early stages of training.
Topics include: using carpentry tools and equipment, carrying out setting out, carrying out levelling operations, installing lining, panelling and moulding, constructing bulkheads, framing and fitting wet area features, fixing standard plasterboard wall sheets. Students should also spend time in a workplace to gain on-the-job training and mentoring while developing their technical skills and becoming more employable.
Partial Certificate III in Carpentry Stage 2 can be studied as a stand-alone Vocational Education and Training subject or as part of a School-based Apprenticeship.
No TGSS subsidy is available for this course.
