Overview

Blue Dog Training’s Certificate III in Carpentry course is self-paced, flexible and has a strong focus on the practical skills developed in the workplace. There is no block release for any Blue Dog Training apprentices as the training is delivered during down time – wet days, between jobs, waiting on materials etc.

A trade qualified, industry experienced trainer will work with the apprentice and employer to develop an Individual Training Plan with consideration given to the apprentice and employer’s circumstances and the range of work that will be covered in the workplace. When commencing an apprenticeship with Blue Dog, a trainer is allocated to each apprentice and their employer. This is to support each and every apprentice and their employers throughout the training process and to ensure apprentices are developing skills and progressing through the apprenticeship.

On completion of the apprenticeship, the completing apprentice will have a thorough work history which will assist in attaining a Queensland Building and Construction Commission licence. In Queensland, apprenticeship and traineeship training and assessment is funded by the Queensland Government under the User Choice Program which is administered by the Department of Education 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 apprenticeships or traineeships at the same time. In addition, apprentices 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.

I found the Blue Dog method of training really suited me and it was great to have such a knowledgeable trainer like Dave Porter all the way through my apprenticeship. Dave was always available to help me out and give me encouragement. My employers Aaron and Ken were also supportive every step of the way. They are both craftsmen with great skills who are always keen to share their knowledge and skill.
