About the Programme
Choose the trade that’s right for you
Do you think the trades might be a good fit for you, but are not sure which career path to take or don’t have the entry requirements for higher level courses? The Certificate in Introduction to Trades is the ideal taster programme and has courses in each of the trades – carpentry, electrical, plumbing and vehicle technology.
You’ll be specifically prepared for entry into certificate-level trades programmes. The courses are structured to develop your learning style, and literacy and numeracy skills. You’ll also go on field trips to trade sites to see how the skills you’re learning are used in the workplace.
On graduating you’ll have a good idea of each trade is about and have a wide range of choices for further training in automotive, carpentry, fabrication, mechanical or electrical engineering, or plumbing and gasfitting.
