RII20120 Certificate II in Resources and Infrastructure Work Preparation

Course Objective:

ACTA Group know the hunger for School leavers, New to industry employees and Job seekers looking to dive into the rapid growing industry of Civil Construction.

With infrastructure and growth across QLD, NSW, VIC and WA, we have connected with industry experts engaging and communicating around current and future projects. This strongly supports the importance of the VET sector being involved in training for employers and employees. Demands from employers for skilled workers who are safe, competent and hold currency to perform work to the Australian standards are at a all time high.

We have focused on our NEW training packages involving Cert I & II in Resources and Infrastructure and Civil Construction. We provide bridging pathways for students and companies to conduct training with us and offer the opportunity of employment on completion or new windows of employment with stakeholders seeking skilled staff.
