This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required to perform a range of skills at trade-level for those working in furniture making and those involved in the manufacture and installation of fitted furniture typically in a kitchen, bathroom and related context. Installation skills may be applied to new or renovation work.
The work is in a defined range of skilled operations, usually within a range of broader related activities involving known routines, methods and procedures, where some discretion and judgement is required in the selection of equipment, services or contingency measures and within known time constraints.
This is a Part time day course. You will need to attend approximately 4.5 hours of class, over 1 days a week, for 3 years. As well as the in-class component, you will need to complete approximately 2.7 hours of other study per week.

Before you can start an apprenticeship, you first need to find an employer in the industry you're interested in that will support you through your studies.
You and your employer should contact an Apprenticeship Network Provider (ANP) and tell them you're interested in studying at TAFE NSW.
The ANP will help you and your employer to complete a Training Contract. Once you have a Training Contract, we will help you, your employer and the ANP to complete a Training Plan Proposal.
Once you have both these documents, the ANP will lodge them with State Training Services, who will provide further advice about next steps.
