Certificate III in Carpentry has taken over as TAFE NSW Bathurst’s most popular course in 2017.
TAFE NSW Deputy Regional General Manager Adam Bennett today announced that the Certificate III in Carpentry had overtaken last year’s most popular course, Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care, with the Certificate III in Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration leaping into third position.
“The Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care was not only extremely popular again in Bathurst, it’s actually TAFE NSW’s most popular course in western NSW,” Mr Bennett said.
“We experienced a huge spike in interest and enrolments in the Certificate III in Carpentry course. This is because students recognise this is a massive growth area and there’s a skills shortage right across NSW.
“So not only is this increase driven by industry demand, it’s also because our students enjoy hands-on learning from industry experts. The fact that employers trust our training, which can lead to exciting, real-life employment prospects in the construction industry is also a telling factor.”

Mr Bennett said enrolments for 2018 at TAFE NSW were open now, and would be accepted right across the Christmas period.
“TAFE NSW has more than 1200 courses to choose from – so there’s something for everyone no matter where you live, your skill level or qualifications,” Mr Bennett said.
“With so many exciting options, and with research revealing that TAFE NSW graduates have a higher median income and employment rate than university graduates, there’s never been a better time to consider TAFE.”
