Earthmoving Courses – Training Required to Support Growth in the Civil Construction Sector
The demand for earthmoving courses in Queensland is set to grow exponentially. According to Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ), the construction industry will continue to grow at unprecedented rates, however civil projects will take over general construction as the main contributor to major building projects in SEQ from 2023, as the residential sector largely winds down to due to land shortages.
That means there’s no better time to get qualified in the plant operation machinery predominantly used in the civil construction industry such as Conducting Roller, Excavator, Skid Steer and Telehandler Operations.
The good news is these short courses can be done in and around your main high risk course while on site with us, with CSQ funding available for eligible participants.
