Civil Construction

If you like working outdoors in a team environment, with the opportunity to travel all over Australia, then a civil construction certificate may be for you. We work with employers around Australia in a range of environments, delivering qualifications at Certificate III and IV level in various formats.

At Certificate III level you’ll gain the skills to operate a range of plant and construction machinery which may include large excavators, trenching machines, surface preparation scrapers, dump trucks and a range of large rollers.

At Certificate IV level you’ll be operating within a supervisory position across the industry, responsible for the quantity and quality of the output of others.
