Build Your Future with A Carpentry Apprenticeship in Australia

Carpentry course

The Certificate III in Carpentry must be completed as part of an apprenticeship, and upon successful completion, allows participants to work as a qualified carpenter. Apprentices will learn through a combination of on-the-job training and block training at ICV.

Throughout this course, participants will acquire skills that enable them to carry out a range of tasks required in the building and construction industry.

Apprentices gain essential practical skills, safety standards, and fundamental knowledge to perform as a carpenter.

Apprentices work on a transportable building project, covering 12 units and full construction of the project from start to finish throughout the year. As an alternative to this project, a construction of a single dwelling will be constructed comprising stumps, bearers’ joists, and relative wall and roof framing; this dwelling will be cladded and lined to support required modules allowing also for the associated modules for the second year.

Apprentices learn the formwork aspect of the trade. They also complete the required Certificate III in Carpentry level units, using fundamental knowledge and skills gained in the first and second years.
