Trades Skills are in Demand

Some people will do this course with a view to working in construction - perhaps as a handyman or property manager; or maybe something beyond that.

Learn to evaluate, prioritise and plan the renovation of a building or part of a building; then enact that plan by either undertaking the work or managing the work, or both.
