CPC30220 Certificate III in Carpentry

Benjamin’s talent and skills as a carpenter landed him a spot-on renovation competition reality TV show ‘The Block’. His work on the series stood out for its exceptional quality.

Throughout his three and a half years of training at Holmesglen, his problem-solving skills and willingness to learn made him a valuable asset to his team, which produces high-end construction work.

His superb abilities as a craftsman even earned him the personal trust of teaching staff at Holmesglen – a difficult feat to achieve.

“I would be happy for him to build my home and for my kids, and there are very few I would give this opportunity too,” said Carpentry Teacher Paul Tunne.
