There are fewer longer-standing trades than joinery, and there’s also little doubting its potential long-term rewards for those who embark upon it as a career, with experienced carpenters able to command salaries of as much as £40,000. But if you’re serious about entering this varied trade yourself, what is the best first step you could take?
One course of action could be a quite literal one – our 10-day NOCN Cskills Level 1 Certificate in Carpentry and Joinery Course, which allows you to achieve no less than a full qualification. Provided that you pass the course, you could scarcely hope for a stronger foundation for your future carpentry career.
Five assessments leading to a complete qualification
There are no fewer than five units in which you will be trained and assessed when you enrol on this course. These are the NOCN Cskills Level 1 units in health and safety in construction trades, communicating effectively in construction trades, constructing woodwork joints, fitting architrave and skirting, and fitting ironmongery to an internal door.
With NOCN being the awarding body for construction NVQs, this is the name that you’ll want to have on your certificate when you’re seeking to demonstrate your competence in carpentry to prospective customers or employers.
It’s also important to underline that no prior experience in carpentry and joinery is needed in order to embark on this course. Our Certificate in Carpentry & Joinery courses, then, are very much for budding carpenters who want to rapidly travel a long distance in their new career.
