Each year more than 42,731 homes are built in Victoria, and by 2050, this number will still be increasing. To facilitate this growth, we need qualified carpenters who are skilled to manage the increased need for domestic residential housing.

Building future residential cities and regions is more than creating houses.  In an age of increasing demand for housing and more than half the world’s population living in cities, getting ready for tomorrow’s building landscape means thinking about the bigger picture. Builders Academy Australia (BAA) prepares aspiring carpenters to make a profound impact on the building and construction environment for the next generations. Our accredited Carpentry apprenticeship program connects you with industry mentors to gain professional skills to construct and repair quality domestic building frameworks and structures.

Building apprenticeships with Builders Academy Australia

Careers in the building and construction industry are booming. The Victorian building sector has experienced increased activity largely due to record-low interest rates and strong population growth. The need for qualified carpenters is great.

Qualified carpenters will be needed in Australia’s growing residential building sector as Victoria’s population will almost double within 35 years.  An extra 2.2 million dwellings will be necessary to house the state’s population by 2051. This means Victoria will require almost 55,000 new dwellings per year over the next 35.  BAA ensures that our carpentry students graduate with an industry-respected nationally recognised qualification in an industry with strong employment rates and excellent job prospects.

BAA has intakes for both Certificate II in Construction Pathways (CPC20220) and CPC30220 Certificate III in Carpentry. To find out when our next intakes are, get in touch with our team here or give them a call on 1300 53 43 63.
