The Certificate III in Carpentry provides comprehensive training for carpentry apprentices, and covers all practical and theoretical aspects of the trade.
Carpenters are the key players in domestic house construction, often the first onsite and the last to leave.
While carpenters have their specific skills and tasks to perform in the building process, they must also have knowledge of all other trades as a carpenter's work often accommodates the other trades who follow them.
This course is delivered in Holmesglen's specially designed facilities, where an emphasis is placed on providing hands-on, practical training wherever possible.
All workshop training is delivered by professional teachers, who have completed formal apprenticeships and worked as carpenters in the building and construction sector for a minimum of 10 years, prior to undertaking their teaching qualifications.
To receive this qualification you must complete 22 core units and eight elective units.
Elective units have been chosen by Holmesglen based on feedback from industry and staff qualifications.
If you have already completed other eligible elective units, these may be counted towards completion of this course.
Assessments are designed to provide learners with opportunities to demonstrate they have attained the required skills and knowledge using a range of practically based activities and tasks, as required by recognised standards
