ATTENTION: As much as we’d love to offer more, we can only offer one Free TAFE course per person. If you’ve already enrolled and commenced, or enrolled but didn’t complete a Free TAFE course at any Victorian TAFE in the past you will NOT be eligible for another and will need to pay tuition and materials fees when you enrol. Reach out to us if you think this is you.
Do you love the feeling of building something from scratch? Are you a hands-on learner with plenty of creative ideas? A career as a cabinet maker may just be right for you. A Certificate II in Furniture Making will give you the skills you need to start your employment journey.
Each day is a little bit different as you gain experience with power tools, learn how to prepare and maintain hand tools and static machinery, and explore the varied world of furniture making. You’ll be able to use this qualification as a stepping stone towards an apprenticeship, giving you endless career options!
Prepare yourself for the workplace with skills in communication, teamwork, organisation, planning and independent study as you master the basic skills involved in the Cabinet Making and Joinery industry.
Times1 day per week Thursday 8.00am–4.30pm.
