Not sure what trade is right for you?
We can help you choose your trade. Each trade offers something different. Each trade teaches you different skills. And each trade has a different pathway.
An apprentice is someone who trains for a career by working under the supervision of more experienced workers. It includes on-the-job training combined with formal training for 3-4 years.
To be the safest and the best apprentice you can be. You will be supported every step of the way.
A Group Training Organisation (GTO) employs apprentices and trainees and places them with Training Employers such as tradespeople, builders and contractors for on-the-job training in their trade.
The GTO is the legal employer of the apprentice or trainee. This means the GTO looks after:

As an apprentice you will need to be prepared with for class:
Most work sites are not near any form of public transport. It is important that you have your own form of transportation. You could be working at 1 job site for 3 months or 12 months. The job site could be located anywhere around Sydney. We prefer to match our apprentice with training employers where there is a project being built in their 40km radius to reduce travel times.
The General Construction Induction (White Card) course is a mandatory entry level safety program for the building and construction industry. You cannot step foot onto a worksite in NSW unless you have the White Card. The course focuses on how to work safely and effectively on a job site or construction environment. You can enrol into the General Construction Induction (White Card) training course at our Master Builders Education Centre. The White Card is issued by SafeWork NSW.
