Overview

This course is ideal for anyone who has completed the Level 1 course, or would like to develop their basic skills already gained through work.

Why not broaden your knowledge of carpentry and joinery and the requirements to become a professional in this trade?

You can focus on either carpentry or bench joinery. You'll learn about setting up and operating a circular saw, carcassing, first and second fixing, and carpentry maintenance/repairs.

Student comments are "staff are very supportive and good mentors" " I was able to catch up with the support of the tutors as I started the course late"
