Pre-apprenticeship courses

If you're interested in completing an apprenticeship then a pre-apprenticeship course is a great place to start. You'll train at one of our many locations, learn practical on-the-job skills, and have the opportunity to connect with future employers. The best part is you don't need to have an employer to complete the course.

Post-trade training

Post-trade training is great if you want to specialise, gain a specific trade licence, gain credit towards university or expand your horizons after completing an apprenticeship. TAFE Queensland offers a range of post-trade specialist short courses, diplomas and advanced diplomas.
