The Certificate II in Building and Construction (Carpentry) is a pre-apprenticeship course that’s a first step to getting an apprenticeship in the building industry or in carpentry. It is a comprehensive course based on hands-on experiences. It involves both theory and practical skills in building and construction, with an emphasis on carpentry. This course aims to help students to complete broad-based training in housing and commercial construction, equipping you with the type of skills and knowledge an employer looks for when hiring an apprentice.

At Swinburne, you’re able to gain confidence by familiarising yourself with equipment, materials, practices and expectations, preparing you for the workforce or allowing you to improve on existing skills.

Government funding support is available for this course. Your completed pre-apprenticeship will also provide credit towards your formal studies if you go on to an apprenticeship.
