Pre-apprenticeship profile: where the Certificate II in Construction can lead you – Bricklaying


We have been running pre-apprenticeship courses for over 15 years. During that time we have trained students seeking apprenticeships in bricklaying, tiling and plastering. Some of these students secured apprenticeships and have now completed their 4 years with employers and have started their own businesses.

Angelo is one of those students. He completed a Certificate II in Construction in 2009. This was a difficult time in the construction industry in the wake of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC). New builds had declined, and banks were making it difficult for new home owners to get finance. Despite this, Angelo secured an apprenticeship with a Group Training Organisation (GTO) who placed him with a host employer.

Over the next 4 years Angelo developed his skills and worked on a variety of sites around Adelaide. In 2014 he completed his trade sub-contractors course and is now self-employed. The building industry offers individuals the chance to become their own boss.

Our next Certificate II in Construction course starts October 11th 2016. If you are interested in applying please call us on 83675615 or email admin@fcta.com.au.
