What users have to say...

While I am studying architecture, the packed course content makes it impossible to get a thorough understanding of every product and construction method out there. These courses supplement my tertiary study to help make me job ready.

There are no formal training courses available in the traditional trade training streams and current available RTO’s for new workers in precast factories. These courses fill the void and now we require all new employees to complete a range of courses.

There has been a lot of focus on grouting and the responsibilities of engineers. I strongly encourage anyone involved in building design and installation of prefabricated concrete to do the course.
