I am being told that in order to find work as a carpenter in Adelaide I will need to obtain a Building worker scontractor licence which will involve taking an 11 week course called the Timber framing code and then a further 2 courses in business subjects. (MBASA). I would then be eligible to apply for my licence with the OCBA.
I have been told a white card alone would not be enough because nearly all carpentry work is on a sub-contract basis.
Would I still be able to work whilst I was completing the course as 3 months off work isn't in the plan.
Finding it very confusing at the minute. This is the last piece in the puzzle before we can apply for state sponsorship!
