The 22338VIC Certificate II in Building and Construction Pre- apprenticeship (Carpentry) is for both school leavers and mature age who wish to build their practical experience and knowledge to ensure their employment opportunities as an apprentice carpenter.

This comprehensive course covers all aspects of domestic carpentry and is the perfect starting point for a career in the building and construction industry.  

Carpenters are the key players in domestic house construction - they're the first on site, and the last to leave.

While carpenters have their specific skills and tasks to perform in the building process, carpenters must have knowledge of all other trades, as a carpenter's work often accommodates the other trades who follow them.

Our 22338VIC Certificate II in Building and Construction Pre- apprenticeship (Carpentry) covers all skills and knowledge required for domestic building, at the entry level, including all the tools and equipment used by carpenters.

All teaching is delivered by professional teachers, who have served formal apprenticeships and worked as carpenters in the building and construction sector for a minimum of ten years, prior to undertaking their teaching qualifications.

This is a Free TAFE course 

Students who are eligible for Victorian Government subsidised training may not have to pay course tuition fees when they enrol in a Free TAFE course.
