Ertech Construction Academy

Our group has developed an innovative training academy to provide young people with a pathway into the civil construction industry. The initiative, driven and underwritten by Ertech Holdings, has support from education and industry leaders.

The Ertech Construction Academy provides students enrolled in Year 11 and 12 the opportunity to achieve nationally recognised Certificate I and Certificate II qualifications in Resources and Infrastructure Operations through on-site training and workplace experience whilst still attending high school.

The Ertech Construction Academy has been successful in that graduates from every year have found immediate employment. More than 75% remain employed in the civil construction industry.

Our company is a leader in the training and development of young indigenous people and in 2010 won the “CCF WA Indigenous Trainer of the Year Award”.

Our Perth and Broome academies have trained, mentored and provided career opportunities for nearly 60 young graduates.
