Training your Workforce

Our programs reflect the different learning styles of the students; some learners do better in an interactive environment, some learn best on the job while online training can be invaluable for staff in remote or regional areas.

Experienced existing staff can have their skills formally acknowledged through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

Our consultants can assess the training levels of your staff and identify gaps in skills. Programs can be customised to your organisation to meet these training needs.

“Our Apprentices study a Certificate III in Electrotechnology. Five years ago, we employed our first Apprentice. Since then, we have employed more and more Apprentices. The process of enrolling our students through North Regional TAFE is simple and straight froward. It doesn’t matter whether you are a small or large business, Apprentices are an asset long term.” – 6 Star Electrical, Karratha
