Not available for international students.
The Certificate II in Construction Pathways will provide you with skills and knowledge across a range of trade occupations, such as joinery, shopfitting, carpentry and bricklaying.
It will give you a chance to sample a variety of trade skills and help you find your career path in a highly employable sector.
You'll learn the best work health and safety practices, how to correctly use tools, and learn about the materials you will be working with.
You will understand the job, and what is required of you and be able to effectively communicate with your work-mates.
This qualification’s core units will meet the requirements, and provide credits in most Certificate III qualifications - apprenticeship courses - in building and construction trades.
You’ll gain an understanding of building skills and principles and be exposed to common scenarios you’ll experience on the job.
Our teachers are industry experts that have worked in the field. Here at Holmesglen, we structure our courses to use our real-world working environments so you're prepared to enter into an apprenticeship and begin your trade.
