Carpentry involves the construction and maintenance of buildings, and there is high demand for qualified carpenters. 

This programme will give you the work-ready skills to enter the construction trades as an apprentice carpenter working under supervision.

With additional training and/or experience, you could become a carpenter, junior and senior foreperson, or be self-employed. 

During your studies you will enjoy hands-on training in our workshops and the chance to be involved in real-world, community-based building projects  which will lead to you gaining knowledge about health and safety, trade calculations and hand tools.

During this Certificate, students will also have the opportunity to work on Otago Polytechnic's charity house project.
