Certificate III in carpentry

Course Overview

Carpentry is a career that demands a keen eye for detail and a passion for creativity. However, it is also a trade that is experiencing significant skill shortages in key Australian regions. Have you had years of experience as a carpenter but never had the time to gain a qualification? Then use your extensive experience in the industry to gain a qualification through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process. RPL and Skills Recognition is an assessment process allowing you to achieve all, or part, of a nationally recognised qualification by demonstrating your knowledge, skills and experience in your trade. Generally, to complete a qualification via RPL your assessment will include provision of evidence of works completed, interview/s, including site visits and skills demonstrations.
