Can I use ITAB?

Any self-employed builder in New Zealand can choose to train a ITAB carpentry apprentice.

Importantly, you don’t have to be a member of NZCB, although the association welcomes Trade Qualified Carpenters as a minimum requirement for membership and encourages its members to choose ITAB.

Many non-aligned builders choose ITAB as their preferred training provider due to the traditional training methods and delivery methods provided by our Polytechnic partners.

ITAB can provide carpentry apprenticeship training for large commercial building companies or small residential operators and everything in between.
