Certificate III in Joinery
Within four weeks of receiving sufficient and complying evidence of competency in all applied for units of competency.
The Certificate III in Joinery recognises the skills, knowledge and experience within the joinery trade, covering both residential and commercial applications. The core unit of the qualification covers the common skills required by the industry as well as specialist work. The construction industry demands that training and assessment for recognition and skills take place in a real, or very similar workplace environment. All units within this qualification must be delivered in such context.
To qualify for this certificate, you must provide evidence demonstrating that your skills and knowledge align with the courser’s learning outcomes. This evidence can take various forms. Demonstrating your current proficiency at a comparable level can be done through a CV (your student support representative can assist with this), an employment letter, or an employment contract.
Additionally, documents from prior work or educational experiences, such as references from licensed tradespeople you’ve collaborated with, apprenticeship records, academic transcripts, or assessments from relevant past qualifications, all contribute to the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process. You can also submit proof of overseas qualifications or visual evidence of your work, especially for practical roles.
