carpentry training


Here at Smith’s Carpentry, we believe in continuous training and upskilling for all our staff. We also work closely with our local training providers to ensure delivery of the courses we need.

In order to excel at what we can do for you, we are constantly honing and refining our skills. If there is a new technology to be learned, we will be first in the queue!

We are also keen to address the future skills shortage within the industry. We employ on average 4 apprentices per year who are trained up to NVQ level 2 & 3 in Carpentry. Once qualified they are usually then offered a place with Smiths and will then be encouraged to gain further specific training in timber frame, structural beams and SIPS.
