Once you’ve successfully completed a basic or DIY level carpentry course, it makes sense to move on to the next level if you are preparing for City and Guilds 6217-02 certificate and training for carpentry level 2 NVQ qualification.
The carpentry level 2 course will get you working on more advanced carpentry work as well receiving guidance and assistance with organising your competency portfolio together for assessment. At the successful end of your learning journey, you will receive the City and Guilds 6217-02 certificate with a clear path to achieving carpentry level 2 NVQ as well as obtaining a CSCS card (which is now required on any build work in the UK).
All training is hands-on, practical and based on real life applications. Most learning providers will provide tools and materials but you will be required to wear suitable clothing and protective footwear (preferably steel toed), which is compulsory.
