Carpentry involves the construction and maintenance of buildings and as the population grows, so does the demand for qualified tradespeople. 

This programme, based at both our Dunedin and Central Otago campuses 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 go on to further roles including a carpenter, junior and senior foreperson and self-employment.

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 based at our Dunedin campus will also have the opportunity to work on Otago Polytechnic's charity house project.
