Looking for an apprenticeship? Enrol in the Certificate II in Construction (CPC20112)

The Certificate II in Construction (CPC20112) is often referred to as a ‘Pre-apprenticeship’ course. This is because employers looking to hire apprentices frequently recruit current students and graduates. Our next course starts 30th January 2018. The course will focus developing hand skills across tiling, bricklaying and plastering.

If you have been considering becoming an apprentice, but you’re not sure which trade to focus on, this course will give you an insight into several different trades as well as basic concreting and scaffolding. You will also have the opportunity to work alongside existing apprentices to find out what working in the building industry is like.

The course is open to applicants over 16 years old. Government funding is available to most applicants via the State governments WorkReady programme. Students enrolled at High School who are over 16 can also complete the course under TGSS funding.

The goal of this course is to help students into work within the building and construction industry. We have employers who are currently looking to hire apprentices and during the course, you will have the opportunity to be placed into work experience. Employers are generally seeking people under 21 with a drivers license and vehicle. There are employers willing to consider adult apprentices, but they are much less common than junior apprenticeships. If you would like to know more, or have any questions please contact us on 8367 5615.
