Technical Diploma in Site Carpentry
If you have completed a Level 2 carpentry course and are working towards a career as a tradesperson working with wood in the construction industry, this qualification is ideal for enhancing and specialising your skills and knowledge of site carpentry. You will learn about the industry including the principles of constructing buildings and the types of information used in building design and construction.
During the course you will learn:
– Health, safety and environmental issues faced on construction sites
– How to communicate with others on the job
– Planning, organising and pricing work
You will also learn practical skills specific to specialist site carpentry, including:
– Carrying out second fixing operations
– Carrying out second fixing double doors and mouldings
– Setting up and using fixed and transportable machinery
You will be assessed on your practical skills and knowledge at the end the year.
You will require a carpentry qualification at Level 2 or relevant trade experience. It is also essential that you have good Maths and English skills, preferably at GCSE grade C or above.
Following this qualification, if you are interested in construction management, you could progress to the Level 4 HNC in Construction. Alternatively, work promotion may be available with the enhanced level of skills and knowledge obtained during the course.
