Carpentry & Joinery apprenticeship

Established over 40 years ago, The John G Sisk Training Centre in Dublin trains skilled young apprentices in carpentry & joinery to a professional level. The Sisk carpentry & joinery apprenticeship is consistently recognised in awards at a national level.

The four year apprenticeship course entails periods of full-time study, practical workshop experience and exposure to the construction site environment as you work towards a FETAC Advanced Certificate Level 6 in carpentry & joinery.

Some of our finest apprentices have participated at the Ireland Skills Live competition and other Sisk apprentices have gone on to represent Ireland at the World Skills competition.  

Applications for our carpentry & joinery apprenticeship intake has now closed.
