Top quality tradespeople are in high demand. With Swinburne’s Certificate III in Carpentry under your tool belt, you’ll have the edge to become a chippy of choice.

Work as an apprentice in real-world settings, interspersed with on-campus trade school periods to hone and assess your progress. You’ll gain essential knowledge and skills to be able to work across both residential and commercial construction jobs, including:

  • Framing, fixing and lock up
  • Reading plans
  • New homes and renovations
  • Building regulation compliance
  • Working safely at heights, and much more

As a trade qualified and quality carpenter, you’ll be part of an in-demand occupation, ready to work. Seek employment as a carpenter, joiner, supervisor or site manager, or perhaps become a self-employed contractor.

You may even wish to build on your qualifications and apply for Swinburne’s Certificate IV in Building and Construction on your pathway to becoming a registered builder.
