Get in-depth knowledge about the building and contruction industry

Develop specialist skills by combining key areas of joinery such as static machines and CNC operation with the formalised construction skills of a carpenter. You will also gain a broad understanding of the building contruction industry.

If you’ve secured an apprenticeship in the off-site construction field and would like a formal qualification in stair building, this course is for you.

Once you’ve completed the Certificate III in Carpentry and Joinery(Stairs), you’ll have the skills and confidence to build stairs for residential and commercial buildings.

Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with theoretical components of the course online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available.

Practical skills training and assessment will be carried out in scheduled small classes in order to meet social distancing requirements. The usual rhythms of block or day release may be disrupted temporarily given the altered scheduling of practical training and assessment. It may be possible for apprentices and trainees to capture assessment evidence in their workplace. This will be negotiated on a case by case basis with the individual and their employer.

If you have any queries on the course delivery or practical skills training and assessment, please contact our Apprenticeship Hub on 1300 775 265 or
