How to become a carpenter

Carpentry is a job that comes with a lot of perks - your skills can be applied in your own home, and you should be able to bring in a very healthy salary. If you've decided that you want to be a carpenter, you've probably got some questions, such as:

  • How do you become a carpenter?
  • Do you need carpenter qualifications?
  • Where can you go to study carpentry?

How do you become a carpenter?

Traditionally, to become a carpenter you would have to become an apprentice for up to 3 years, slowly learning the skills required to carry out jobs independently. Nowadays, it is possible to learn the necessary skills in a much shorter time frame. Our carpentry courses combine practical teaching with virtual classroom sessions to give you the carpentry qualifications and experience you'll need to be able to carry out various carpentry jobs.

Whether you want to become a professional carpenter or just learn enough skills to carry out DIY jobs at home, Access Training can help. We have designed a series of carpentry courses designed to suit a range of needs and outcomes - from courses that are suitable for complete beginners, to professional courses designed for people with prior carpentry knowledge. Whatever your goals, you will be able to find a course that helps you to become the carpenter you want to be.

On our Essential Carpentry Course, you'll learn the foundations of carpentry, whereas the Professional Carpentry Course will allow you to get your Level 2 Diploma in Site Carpentry, which enables you to move on to the NVQ Level 2 Certification for more experienced carpenters. These qualifications allow you to prove your carpentry and joinery skills to employers and clients alike.
