Want formal qualifications for your trade skills? Convert on the job training into qualifications

Australian Trade Training College (ATTC) is offering eligible participants the opportunity to gain a nationally recognised qualification through the Skills Assessment and Gap Training Program – General Construction.

The program, which is a fully funded Construction Skills Queensland initiative, is aimed at workers and career seekers from the building and construction industry who have developed significant skill levels and abilities throughout their careers, although hold no formal qualification recognising their experience.

The Skills Assessment and Gap Training Program – General Construction provides eligible participants with the opportunity to have their skills and abilities learnt on the job recognised against the requirements of a formal qualification. Working with Construction Skills Queensland to provide the program, ATTC can identify the skills participants already hold, and then provide gap training that is needed to meet the requirements of the relevant qualification.

ATTC Head of Department, Terry Blake, said the program is a great initiative to recognise the skills and experience amassed by workers in the building and construction industry.

“There are a large number of workers in the building and construction industry who have significant skills and experience that they have learnt ‘on the job’ throughout their working lives, but who do not hold a formal qualification. The Skills Assessment and Gap Training Program – General Construction provides some of those workers with an avenue to have their skills and abilities recognised and obtain a formal qualification,” Mr Blake said.

The program is a combination of assessment of eligible participant’s existing skills, knowledge and abilities, supported by the delivery of gap training for the elements required to complete a full qualification.

The Skills Assessment and Gap Training Program – General Construction provides eligible participants with the opportunity to obtain one of the following nationally recognised qualifications:

  • CPC30111 Certificate III in Bricklaying/Blocklaying
  • CPC30211 Certificate III in Carpentry
  • CPC31011 Certificate III in Solid Plastering
  • CPC30313 Certificate III in Concreting
  • MSF31113 Certificate III in Cabinet Making

“We are encouraging workers from the building and construction industry to think about their experience in the industry and contact us to see if they are eligible to participate in this program. The program has strict eligibility criteria for participants, however ATTC is able to assist interested participants in determining whether they meet all of the requirements for the program,” Mr Blake said.
The Skills Assessment and Gap Training Program must be completed by eligible participants by 30 September, 2015.
