Core Industry Training offers the CPC30211 Certificate III in Carpentry qualification via Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). You can have your current experience, skills and knowledge assessed against the requirements of the qualification.

ENROLMENT REQUIREMENTS

You must be able to demonstrate a minimum of three to four years relevant experience to validate your ability to competently and successfully undertake the range of carpentry tasks.

You should also possess an adequate level of language, literacy and numeracy skills sufficient enough to read and interpret building plans, specifications, codes and standards as well as undertake a variety of calculations.

You must also have completed the general OHS construction safety induction course.

ASSESSMENT

The RPL assessments are designed for those people currently working within the building and construction industry as carpenters and want to be assessed for the qualification based on their current experience and skill levels.

Following an initial interview with one of our assessors who will discuss with you your building industry experiences, including the types of projects that you have worked on, what your roles were and who you were employed by, you will complete a self assessment guide which will provide an indication of how your current experience matches the qualification.

Following this, you will enrol and be issued with a RPL Assessment Manual that will detail all of the evidence that you need to collect, how to present your evidence and how the assessment will be conducted.

In brief, the assessment will consist of workplace visits and observations and participating in competency conversations with your assessor were you will discuss the different aspects of each unit of competency in a bid to identify your current level of underpinning knowledge. It will also involve the gathering of evidence to show you have experience in the practical aspects of each unit of competency. This evidence will be outlined in the RPL Assessment Manual.

TIMEFRAME

The RPL process does not have a minimum time frame, although the average time taken to gather the required evidence and conduct the assessment will generally be around six to eight weeks.

Remember, the quicker you collect and submit all required evidence to your assessor the quicker the assessment can be completed and your qualification issued.
