This course will provide students with a pathway into the construction industry, by gaining the skills and knowledge suited for entry to off-site occupations such as joinery, carpentry, bricklaying and other general construction occupations.
With the Basic Carpentry Skills course, you will be introduced to the work health and safety (WHS) requirements through safe work practices in all on- or off-site construction workplaces. The course will cover fundamental WHS requirements necessary to undertake work tasks within any sector in the construction industry. It includes the identification of hazardous materials, including asbestos, and compliance with legislated work safety practices. Please note: It does not cover removal of asbestos, which is a licensed activity.

Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry covers these induction training requirements.
