The Building and Construction industry is one of the largest employers in Australia. Due to the successful mining resource sector, increasing economic activity and migration to Australia from overseas, there is currently a massive shortage of residential homes, apartments, and commercial buildings. This has led to huge demand for qualified tradesmen and Apprentices in all trades.

North Metropolitan TAFE's exciting new mortar trades course is perfect for those not sure of which trade is for them. You'll cover bricklaying, wall and floor tiling, solid plastering and wall and ceiling fixing.

Offered at our Balga and Clarkson campuses, you'll gain an introduction to each of the above trades. You can then decide which trade pathway to choose, and the relevant lecturer will help organise work placement with a qualified employer which can lead to an Apprenticeship and the start of a successful and rewarding career.

Construction pathway courses lead to lifelong learning where on completion of an apprenticeship, you can complete further training and progress to become a Builder, Supervisor, Scheduler, Estimator, Trade Lecturer, or many other Construction careers.
