The Certificate III in Concreting is the recognised qualification to become a qualified Concreter. We nurture our Trainees so they gain life and work skills that employers want. You get to apply what you learn in real projects at work.
Learn to place concrete for various tasks, read and understand plans for a site, and everything in between. Learn in our state-of-the-art workshops, and practice establishing concrete framework and placing and decorating concrete.
The construction industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in an actual workplace or very closely simulated workplace environment, and this qualification requires all units of competency to be delivered in this context.
Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to concreting in some states and territories. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to confirm these requirements.
This course is available as part of the Free TAFE Courses scheme for eligible students.
