Rick King

Tutor - Carpentry

Rick has been part of the Carpentry programme team at TPP for the last 10 years, and was previously involved in building and construction for the railways and, residential and commercial building in a range of positions, including running his own business for 9 years. He’s been integral in installing industry-first computer-based assessment for trades students here, in collaboration with Otago Polytechnic. The initiative has given students a more effective method of communicating their own ideas as opposed to writing answers that relate to visual concepts, and is proving a real success.
