Want to become a carpenter, site supervisor, building project manager, construction firm owner or self-employed builder? Learn from professionals and gain sought after skills with a carpentry apprenticeship pathway brought to you by Otago Polytechnic and Industry Training Association Building (ITAB).
The one-year New Zealand Certificate in Construction Trade Skills (Level 3) Carpentry gives you the skills you need to enter the industry as an apprentice carpenter and do the four-year New Zealand Certificate in Carpentry (Level 4).
If you can find a construction employer who'll take you on as an apprentice, you can enter directly into the apprenticeship scheme and do the compulsory block courses and practical on-site apprenticeship assessment without doing New Zealand Certificate in Construction Trade Skills (Level 3) Carpentry.
