If you have already completed the Level 2 Diploma in Site Joinery and wish to further your skills, then this course is ideal for you.

Site carpentry focuses on woodwork essential to a construction site, and includes fitting flooring, roofing frame installation, partition wall construction and stair building.

Roofing techniques
Geometrical stairs
Curved joinery
