Certificate III in Carpentry
I chose TAFE Queensland because it offered the carpentry course I wanted and I had heard a lot of good feedback from past students. My experience at TAFE Queensland has been a positive one. The teachers and staff are very friendly and helpful and the teachers are very knowledgeable. I would recommend TAFE Queensland to other international students as I’ve received a high quality education here.
