Master Builders Apprenticeship Services and Master Builders Education and Skills Development have developed a unique program for people over the age of 21 years to start an apprenticeship to become a trade qualified carpenter as part of an accelerated program.
This unique and innovative program contains the 3 steps:
Step 1 - Commencement Training (2 week Training Course)
Step 2 - Commence carpentry apprenticeship with Master Builders Apprenticeship Service
Step 3 - Apprentice Training - 24 months minimum
The Commencement Training is compulsory 2 week training program to establish carpentry skills, safety training and get the candidates 'Master Builders Apprenticeship Ready'. This includes units of competency within the carpentry trade qualification, manual handling, safe working at heights and power tool safety.
The next step is commencing the apprenticeship with employment with Master Builders Apprenticeship Service and placement with a Master Builders Training Employer.
During the apprenticeship term, a Master Builders Adult Apprentice will attend Master Builders Education and Skills Development Centre for 12 days face to face training per year, and complete assessment tasks and preparation material through online delivery to achieve competency in all units of Certificate 3 Carpentry.
A Master Builders Adult Apprentice who has met the requirements for all of the units of competency within Certificate 3 Carpentry can apply for early completion of their apprenticeship contract under Competency Based Completion.
Each application for competency based completion is reviewed in consultation with the Master Builders Training Employer, the Adult Apprentice and Master Builders Apprenticeship Service. If everyone agrees that the apprentice is suitably qualified and experienced, the apprentice can complete their apprenticeship contract.This can be achieved in as little as 2 years!
Master Builders Apprenticeship Services runs the Adult Apprenticeship Program only a couple of times a year on a demand basis.
Our ideal candidates for this program have building or construction experience, however a strong passion and willingness to work hard to achieve their goal of a carpentry trade qualification is essential. A white card (General Construction Induction Card) and ability to commence an Australian Apprenticeship contract is essential.
Each candidate is selected through a process of application review, aptitude testing, interview and reference checking.
The next Adult Apprenticeship Program is scheduled for Monday 17 August 2020 through to Friday 28 August 2020. If you are interested in applying for this Program, please register your interest today.
