Carpentry is the most recognised qualification in the Building and Construction Industry
The Australian Government has identified a skills shortage in carpentry and qualified carpenters are in high demand.
A Certificate III in Carpentry provides you with a direct pathway to a Certificate IV in Building/Construction (Building).
Our qualification is aimed at those working as experienced, unqualified carpenters who are looking to formalise their skills and knowledge through a mixture of RPL and training and assessment.
There’s a good reason Chippies are chirpy people
Carpentry provides a range of opportunities to engage creative skills with technical skills and many tradies get great satisfaction from seeing a project they helped to design come to life in a physical form.
Carpentry services are required in almost every kind of building project imaginable and is an essential service in the Australian jobs sector.
