Carpenters use a range of techniques to construct residential and commercial buildings and infrastructure. The carpentry trade allows you to work outdoors with your hands, and can lead to opportunities to work for yourself as a sub-contractor.
Blue Dog Training's Certificate III in Carpentry (CPC30211) course is self-paced and flexible, with a strong focus on the practical skills developed in the workplace. Our training is suitable for school-based apprentices, part-time apprentices or mature-aged apprentices.
Upon completion, the apprentice will be issued with a nationally recognised Certificate III in Carpentry qualification. Completion of this qualification is considered a useful step in the pathway to the following careers:
|Attendance||On-the-job training. No classrooms or block training. Flexible theory delivery.|
|Course Duration||4 year contract term and 3.5 years standard expected duration. Existing skills and experience are recognised and training may be fast-tracked, if appropriate.|
|Entry Requirements||Employment-based training. Apprentices must have an employer with a full scope of work and be supervised by a qualified carpenter before training can commence.|
|Locations||This course is offered in Queensland.|
Our trainers are trade-qualified with relevant industry experience. They work with the apprentice and employer to develop an individual training plan. Consideration is given to the apprentice and employer's circumstances, as well as the range of work that will be covered in the workplace.
Theory is delivered through our online learning platform, and the practical development of on-site skills is documented using our Skills Profiler app. Your designated trainer will track your progress, provide support where required and assess your competency throughout the apprenticeship.

In Queensland, apprenticeship training and assessment is funded by the Queensland Government under the User Choice program which is administered by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training.
Apprentices and trainees can only receive one government contribution for a User Choice funded qualification at any single point in time, i.e. a student is not funded to undertake two apprenticeship or traineeships at the same time. In addition, apprentice and trainees including school-based apprentices and trainees (SATs), can only receive a maximum of two government funding contributions under the current User Choice program.
More information on the Queensland Government funding rules, fees and fee concessions is available in the Blue Dog Training Student Handbook.
