Carpentry Courses

Carpentry courses here at Able Skills.


Our City & Guilds Carpentry Course is a great place to start. This accredited 3-week basic carpentry qualification is an excellent start for anyone looking to start training as a Carpenter. This course will give you a really good understanding of the fundamentals and lays a good foundation of knowledge and ability to build on if you were to continue perusing the trade with a City & Guilds certificate upon completion. Can't commit to a 3-week course? Well, this course can also be completed over a series of weekends! 





No experience? If you would like to gain the fundamentals before applying to one of our more full-on courses you may want to take our Introduction to Carpentry course. This course will give you the absolute basics over a period of 5-days. This course has been recognised as an excellent way to start learning and therefore upon completion of this introductory course, you will receive a City & Guilds certificate! This is a short course but it is still packed with plenty of information and valuable lessons including how to use hand tools such as chisels, cutting basic joints, how to cut and fit architraves and skirting, how to fit a Lock and fitting a door into a lining/frame. We have fantastic facilities, equipment, tools, materials and instructors here to give you a great start in the trade!
