TIV offers the opportunity to students and their employers to be their Carpentry trade school. We offer flexible training and support, allowing an apprentice to work, earn and learn at their place of employment.
Apprentices will attend TIV’s trade school for two consecutive days each month for 10 months of each year. This will be conducted by our great trainers who have a wealth of knowledge and a high degree of industry experience. They will also support your ‘on the job’ training progress throughout the Apprenticeship by having regular contacts with you and your employer.
All of our trainers keep up to date by being engaged within the industry. So they know how things work in the real world.
