The apprentice will work with a range of tools and equipment to set out, manufacture, construct, assemble, install and repair products made using timber and non-timber materials.
Successful completion of the course will result in the issuance of a Certificate of Qualification and a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for CPC30220 - Certificate III in Carpentry.
