CARPENTRY

Certificate III in Carpentry (Corporate) (CPC30211)

Location: Williamstown & West Footscray

TIV’s Carpentry program caters to anyone and everyone interested in becoming a qualified Carpenter and/or Registered Builder 

So if you’re interested in Carpentry we’ll get you trained the right way at TIV.

One of TIV’s clear points of difference is its flexibility and adaptability in working with each and every student to accommodate their needs and objectives. 

Nowhere is this more prevalent than TIV’s Corporate Carpentry Program that caters specifically for professional Victorian athletes and sporting clubs.

GROUP KANGA

TIV is in partnership with seven Victorian AFL clubs and the NRL’S Melbourne Storm for the delivery of the Certificate III in Carpentry training programs in 2017 and beyond.

Carlton, Collingwood, Essendon, Richmond, North Melbourne, St. Kilda and the Western Bulldogs all have players studying courses at TIV in 2017 and beyond, with the total number of players now in excess of 40.

LOCK5

Trade based qualifications have long been considered one of the hardest industries for AFL/NRL clubs to assist their players’ educational development largely due to the physical nature of the programs, the commitment required in the courses but most importantly thelack of a clear and definitive pathway and flexible training provider for AFL/NRL players.

TIV recognises and understands the professional nature and commitment required among AFL/NRL players and sports people more broadly, and has consequently developed a flexible and efficient training model specifically designed to cater for these clubs and players.

first_info

TIV works closely with each AFL/NRL player and club involved in its programs prior to designing and implementing a practical and workable training structure, allowing the players to move through the courses efficiently, simultaneously balancing the demands and responsibilities of their football/rugby playing careers.

The Trade Institute of Victoria continues to be an industry leader with regards to its professionalism and credibility in the education and training space but also for its innovative training concepts, first class facilities and more specifically in this case, the flexibility they offer and the attention-to-detail they provide each and every student.

For AFL/NRL clubs in particular, such understanding and flexibility by training providers is particularly well received, allowing for a more definitive and clear trade based career pathway to be collaboratively developed between AFL/NRL clubs and TIV.

Certificate III in Bricklaying/Blocklaying (CPC30111)

to begin training.
