Course Description

* This course has intakes in both semester 1 and 2.

This course is delivered by Thebarton Senior College in association with TAFE SA (RTO 41026). In this practical-based course students participate in a wide range of activities designed to develop and improve knowledge and skills in many building and construction trade areas.

Students become familiar with a wide range of construction tools and equipment, work in a simulated work environment and participate in work placement on building sites.

Course Content

Practical activities include:

  • Safety on the worksite
  • Workplace communication
  • Demolition, recycling and reuse
  • Introduction to carpentry skills
  • Basic bricklaying
  • Timber-framed wall construction
  • Wall frame cladding, flushing and painting
  • Basic roofing
  • Cubby house construction
White Card training is undertaken through TAFE SA (RTO 41026), which will give students the authority to access building sites as needed.

Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) training booklets are completed to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the theory behind the practical activities. This requires some work at home outside of the normal College time allocation.
