The construction industry is a major sector of the Western Australian workforce and economy, and encompasses a huge variety of career pathways. It is closely aligned to building and includes a large range of trades such as carpentry and joinery, glass, bricklaying and glazing and roof plumbing, as well as an array of fields like site management, line management, estimating and contracting.

 

Our floor and wall tiling qualifications cover waterproofing, tile types, tile glues, tiling patterns and cement mortars, allowing you to develop specialist layout skills across a range of horizontal, vertical, curved sloped and twisted surfaces. You will be able to renovate or work in new buildings, including houses, shops, offices, factories and swimming pools.

North Metropolitan TAFE will spark your career in electrical and electrotechnology. Our courses will give you the skills to interpret electrical drawings, develop circuits, install and maintain electrical components, wiring, and to use equipment and systems in residential and commercial applications. 

Being able to learn how to select, install, set up, test, fault-find, repair and maintain electrical systems and equipment in buildings and premises requires a very specific and complex skillset, which is why qualified and trained people in this industry are always in demand.

Our carpentry and joinery qualifications are suitable for an Australian building apprenticeship pathway, qualifying you for work on both residential and commercial construction sites. You will also qualify for more advanced building and construction courses and for further training towards your builder’s licence. 

Our bricklaying and blocklaying qualifications will give you the necessary skills and knowledge to lay bricks and blocks using different bonds for domestic, commercial, industrial and public buildings, and how to construct ornamental panels, feature walls, arches and columns. 

Our courses will see you ready to read and interpret plans
and specifications, apply basic leveling procedures, carry out measurements and calculations, handle and prepare materials, and use appropriate tools and equipment. 

North Metropolitan TAFE is WA’s leading training provider for higher qualifications in this industry filled with exciting challenges and opportunities.
