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.


Course structure

The CPC30211 Certificate III in Carpentry is structured to follow the building of a house or other development, commencing with OHS, the safe use of tools and equipment then onto the units that from the base of any structure: excavation, setting out and flooring systems through to the completion of walls, doors and windows.

Units such as Use carpentry tools and equipment ensure the apprentice is sufficiently capable with all hand held and power tools, equipment and static machinery to be safe when undertaking further practical units of study.

The more theory-based units are interspersed through the delivery schedule to support the apprentice's knowledge and skills when applied to the practical units.

ASSESSMENT

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.
