TAFE NSW’s civil construction courses are practical, industry-based and can be customised and tailored for all levels of your business requirements. Course levels include:

  • Certificate III  – for trainees and apprentices, construction and civil works crews, plant operators and trades
  • Certificate IV – for supervisors, foremen and site administrators

TAFE NSW takes the needs of your business seriously and our training focuses on ensuring your staff have the most up to date industry qualifications and safety training to improve the productivity of your workforce. Our professional trainers will ensure your staff are trained to carry out their work safely and understand your individual WHS, risk and safety processes.


With ever changing methods of construction, materials and processes, it is important your staff have the latest in industry knowledge and up to date qualifications.  TAFE NSW continually consults with customers and industry to ensure our training materials and teaching processes are current to industry and workplace requirements.


With record investment in infrastructure spending over the next 10 years, is your business ready? TAFE NSW can make sure your operators and crews qualifications are current and your business, project and safety processes are compliant. We can also assist with information on submitting winning tenders. TAFE NSW will help you capitalise on the infrastructure boom and get ahead of the competition.

Apprentices and trainees in your business

Apprenticeships and traineeships have changed. The Australian Federal Government is investing heavily in supporting businesses to take on apprentices and trainees with recently improved wage subsidies, apprentice support, payroll tax concessions and retention incentives.

We know the many benefits a quality apprentice or trainee can bring to your business. We can work with you to provide your apprentice or trainee with nationally-recognised training and the skills to support your business.

Tailored programs

TAFE NSW recognises that business needs to constantly change and update to meet new opportunities, diversify and grow. With this growth comes the need for new skills and training of your people in new methods or systems or to meet new standards of compliance. We can tailor our programs to suit your business needs, fill the gaps within your business, and upskill your staff to comply with legislation.
