Construction Skills Queensland Funded Courses Available Now!

Thanks to Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ), we have a very limited number of fully funded courses available for Queensland building and construction workers. CSQ is an independent industry funded body supporting employers, workers, apprentices and career seekers in the building and construction industry. The Higher Level Skills Program is designed to keep existing workers in Queensland’s building and construction industry by providing access to Certificate IV and higher level vocational training.

This is your opportunity to develop new skills you can use to move into supervisory roles or take on different, less physically demanding duties at work. Training can also help you respond to labour shortages in the industry or develop new in-demand skills; perfect if you are currently underemployed and seeking more opportunities for work, looking for a change or just like to stay ahead of the curve.

Enrolments are open and places are limited, so contact us now to secure your training!
