Certificate II In Building And Construction (Pathway - Trades) [Wall And Floor Tiling Pre-Apprenticeship]
Course code: AA35
National ID: 52443WA
About this Course
This is a pre-vocational course for learners seeking a career in a construction trade. The first stage of the course is common to 11 construction trades and provides an introduction to the industry, its culture, occupations, job roles and workplace expectations. The units of competency cover essential occupational health and safety requirements, the industrial and work organisation structure, communication skills, work planning, and basic use of tools and materials. Learners are able to consider the 11 trades during the initial stage and while attending work experience.
The latter stage of the course provides the learner with a choice to complete specific competencies from a particular trade stream that lead directly into a trade qualification, with full articulation and credit transfer, when seeking an apprenticeship.
This course comprises training at South Metropolitan TAFE and structured work experience in the wall and floor tilng trade area. It is designed to enhance skill development in all aspects of carpentry and joinery.
Pre-apprentice course graduates need to be indentured by an employer before they can go on to training as an apprentice, however, graduates have a very good chance of gaining an apprenticeship as they have covered a large part of the off -the-job training requirements and gained valuable practical experience on-the-job.
This qualification is delivered at South Metropolitan TAFE over 1 semester, which equates to 6 months of full-time study.
