Why Building & Construction

If you have a passion for hands-on work, like keeping fit and working both indoors and outdoors then a building trade will give you the skills to take you all over Australia.

We offer a range of building trade courses including pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship courses in a variety of construction trades including carpentry, furniture and cabinet making.

As part of your training in carpentry you will receive the skills to work in constructing, erecting and renovating structures and fixtures for residential and commercial buildings. 

Your qualification can lead you to working outdoors on building sites erecting framing for buildings or inside upgrading interior fixtures.

If furniture or cabinet making is more your thing, we can give you the skills to use hand and power tools, while teaching you about safety, timber joints and construction, assembly and the operation of woodworking.

The skills you gain in this course can be applied to anything from furniture making to kitchen cabinetry.

We also offer the Certificate IV in Building and Construction, if you’re a qualified tradesperson looking to prepare for builders' registration or move into supervisory roles.
