What You’ll Learn

This Joinery qualification will provide you with an understanding of how to construct and assemble various joints to achieve a City & Guilds joinery certificate.

To achieve this Joinery  certificate, you will undertake training and assessment to complete the following units:

The assessments you will undertake are:
