If you’re preparing to join the building and construction industry, then an entry level Certificate III in Joinery is essential.
This course will help you develop a broad understanding of manufacturing joinery components while using specialist, computer-controlled machinery. You’ll learn important skills in manufacturing and installing doors and window frames, constructing and assembling stairs and much more.
Taught over a four-year period, this hands-on qualification is designed to put your skills into practice as you learn them. That’s why all apprentices attend 10 x three day blocks per year (Year 1, Year 2, Year 3) for the duration of your apprenticeship.
These learning days are designed to make sure your skills are where they should be, and our teachers will be here to support you through that every step of the way. And because you work and learn at the same time, you can start working in your chosen industry sooner – sounds pretty good to us!
When you complete this course, you’ll be confident and skilled enough to work as a joiner, where the possibilities for your future are endless. You can either begin working as a tradesperson or choose to take your career further by becoming a business owner or site supervisor.
Taking your career further would mean studying a Certificate III in Carpentry, a Certificate IV in Building and Constructions, or a Diploma of Building and Construction (not offered at TAFE Gippsland). All of these qualifications would increase your employment opportunities while you work and learn at the same time.
Now is the time to get started in this exciting industry, and we are here to help you get to where you want to be.
