Certificate III in Carpentry
As a teenager, Mitch used to design and construct his own furniture. Through his apprenticeship, Mitch discovered an interest in residential construction, and the opportunity that he had with Lifetime Homes to build homes for the elderly and people living with disability and injuries: “I love seeing the joy on their faces when we finish their home modification and help make their everyday tasks so much easier”. In eagerness to improve his skills and knowledge, Mitch researches new trends and techniques in the building industry, and enjoys applying them onsite. Mitch has plans for completing further studies in building and design “for a well-rounded future career in the building industry”.
