Course Information

The Certificate III in Carpentry provides comprehensive training, covering all practical and theoretical aspects of the trade.

This course is delivered in Holmesglen's specially designed facilities, where an emphasis is placed on providing hands-on, practical training wherever possible.

Carpenters are the key players in domestic house construction, often the first onsite and the last to leave.

While carpenters have their specific skills and tasks to perform in the building process, they must also have knowledge of all other trades as a carpenter's work often accommodates the other trades who follow them.
