Course details

The course will provide you with hands-on training during which time you will be assessed by our qualified carpentry assessors. The entire City & Guilds process is completed here on site at Able Skills which ensures this course is delivered using the correct procedures and without delay.

You will be trained and assessed across the following areas:

  • Health and Safety in construction
  • Fixing architraves and skirtings
  • Constructing and fixing hatch linings
  • Fitting locks and latches

This is an intensive 3 weeks of hands on training, during which time you will build a portfolio of your work. You will be assessed on a variety of units as detailed above.

If you are still unsure if Carpentry is the career of your choice, why not try our 5 day Introductory Carpentry course first. This will help you decide if you want to progress to a qualification and a career in Carpentry.

This is a hands-on, practical carpentry course and you will be involved at every stage and will be participating throughout. It is therefore recommended you bring suitable clothing and for your own safety, steel capped footwear is essential.
