Founded in 2005, CWBTS offers nationally accredited qualifications for the building and construction industry. These include trades training through the apprenticeship and traineeship models as well as higher level training with building and construction and work health and safety. Training is delivered primarily in the apprentice’s workplace, using both their existing project tasks, as well as the use of our mobile training vehicles and our simulated trades training centres.
Here at CWBTS, we live and breathe building and construction. We intimately understand the industry and have strong relationships within the building and construction community and the education sector.
Through these established connections, we are able to deliver qualifications that provide real-world skills. Our graduates leave our learning organisation with a stronger network and the confidence to take the next step in their career.
