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, by preparing you 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.
What’s even better, is that each day will be a little bit different in this course, 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.
Once you complete this course, you’ll be able to use it as a stepping-stone towards an apprenticeship, giving you endless career options!
Some of those career options are furniture making and cabinet making. You can get there by taking your study further and completing a Certificate III Cabinet Making, or a Certificate III Furniture Making (not offered at TAFE Gippsland). Both of these courses will give you hands-on experience while you work and learn at the same time, increasing your skills and employment opportunities.
If you’re ready to put your creativity to the test and explore the world of furniture making, we are here to work with you, helping you pursue your passions and turn them into a rewarding career.
