Carpentry

Carpentry is a skill gained through both study and experience. Carpentry is the art of a skilled craftsperson that works with timber to construct, install and maintain buildings, furniture and other objects. The study involves developing sound knowledge of the Carpentry industry and learning to identify, select, and correctly install the right building materials and fastening systems. You will also gain experience with the use of hand tools, electrical tools and machinery, learn how to interpret building plans and calculate building materials. As part of most courses you will also complete hours towards your apprenticeship training required to become a qualified Carpenter.
