This qualification is designed for persons seeking recognition as a qualified carpenter. It covers work in residential and commercial applications.
There are no entry requirements for this course. It is recommended that participants:
- Have completed Year 10
- Be at least 15 years of age
- Have been employed in the field of carpentry and have a minimum of five (5) years’ experience
This qualification is delivered through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). This process involves the candidate providing their assessor with information about their work history, experience, previous formal/informal learning and current work functions/skills to determine their entitlement to the qualification.
Upon enrolment, the candidate will be provided with a RPL Application to complete in their own time, which will enable them to provide evidence of their experience. Once the RPL Application has been completed and submitted to the Registered Training Organisation (RTO), an interview with an assessor will be arranged. This interview will allow the candidate to explain the evidence provided, and allow the assessor to question the candidate on their knowledge skill and experience. The assessor may also conduct site visits to confirm the candidate’s level of knowledge and skill.
If gaps in knowledge, skill or experience are identified, further training can be provided for the candidate to obtain the qualification. The duration of this training is dependent on the individual candidate’s prior and current work experience, and as such will vary in duration.
