  • Course Overview

    This course provides comprehensive training for carpentry apprentices, and covers all practical and theoretical aspects of the trade.

    Carpenters are the key players in domestic house construction. Carpenters are the first on-site and the last to leave. While carpenters have their specific skills and tasks to perform in the building process, carpenters must have knowledge of all other trades as a carpenter's work often accommodates the other trades who follow them.

    The course is delivered in Holmesglen's specially designed facilities, where an emphasis is placed on providing hands on, practical training wherever possible. All workshop training is delivered by professional teachers, who have completed formal apprenticeships and worked as carpenters in the building and construction sector for a minimum of ten years, prior to undertaking their teaching qualifications.

  • Course Structure

    To receive this qualification you must complete 22 core units and 8 elective units. Elective units have been chosen by Holmesglen based on feedback from industry and staff qualifications. If you have already completed other eligible elective units, these may be counted towards completion of this program.

    Assessment

    Assessment may be a combination of written and online assignments, tests, examinations and practical application projects.
