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.

This is an excellent starter course, to teach you the basics of a wide variety of building skills, laying a foundation to build on, whether through work experience, further studies, or both.  For others, this is a course that can enable you to carry out at least some of your own building renovation work - avoiding an unnecessary wait to get a tradesman (let alone saving you unnecessary expense).

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.
