CPC30211 Certificate III in Carpentry  

ComSec Training provides numerous skills assessment services for trade occupations to get home building licences.

We can test anybody who can prove they have current trade level skills due to having worked in the industry. Training is aimed at helping tradesmen to get their skills recognised so they can get the formal Trade Qualification. You can get this qualification quite easily.

For the purposes of licencing, carpentry is the cutting and placing of timber or timber composites, in construction work on-site to erect framing and fix components or assemblies used in construction work such as stairs, windows, doors, wallboards (excluding plaster boards which is dry plastering), floors, etc. It includes metal frame erection and constructing formwork ready for concreting.

Work that comes under the banner of carpentry includes but isn’t limited to the following list of items:

  • Minor non-structural concreting related to a dwelling where it’s connected to carpentry. Concreting for footings & structural supports involved in outdoor construction (e.g. timber decks, pergolas, timber and metal fencing, etc.) (Doesn’t include concrete slabs and paths, etc. because they’re general concreting work.).

    "I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. It had been a while since I'd attended a hands-on workshop, but the experience was refreshing. I learned lots, particularly via the practical exercises and by reviewing the various sample websites."
