Strategic Purpose Statement
This qualification recognises the skills and knowledge required to work as a carpenter in the construction industry. People who gain the qualification will have a broad enough knowledge and skill base to work as a competent tradesperson whether they specialise in residential, industrial, commercial or multi-storey construction.

The qualification consists of compulsory carpentry theory, carpentry practical, and first aid standards, and elective standards from the domains of Carpentry, Carpentry Theory, Concrete Construction and Specialist Interiors. This allows for some flexibility in obtaining the knowledge and practical skills required to be a competent carpenter depending on the type of construction work available while completing the qualification. No matter which of the standards are selected from the elective sections, the National Certificate in Carpentry (Level 4) is designed to reflect the skills and knowledge people will have to demonstrate to hold a Carpentry Licence.

This qualification is a prerequisite to the National Certificate in Construction (Leading Hand) (Level 4) [Ref: 1130] and the National Certificate in Construction (Supervisor) (Level 5) [Ref: 1131].
