This qualification is aimed at those who have responsibility for carrying out work in construction related wood
occupations in the workplace and onsite. Because of the wide range of wood occupations it is not expected that all
candidates will carry out the same activities; the qualification is structured to ensure that there is a high degree of
flexibility within the units available, there are 6 pathways to cover a range of tasks that come under the following broad
headings: site carpentry, bench joinery, structural post and beam carpentry, light structural timber framing, timber frame
erection and timber decks and cladding. All work must be completed following industry recognised safe working practices
and in accordance with relevant legislation.
This qualification is at Level 2, although some units may be at different levels and should be taken by those who are
fully trained to deal with routine assignments. Candidates should require minimum supervision in undertaking the job.
The qualification has been developed in a way to allow employees from companies of all sizes and specialisms equal
opportunity to complete.
