ABBTF welcomes the recent announcement from Central Queensland Institute of TAFE that it is providing brick and blocklaying training at the Mackay campus from March this year.
Later in the year, training will be provided at the new TAFE training facility at the Paget campus.
The move by Central Queensland to deliver off site training in Mackay has provided great choice in regards to trade training of apprentices in the region. In the past some bricklayer training has been provided by Mackay Training Services. Industry will also benefit from increased apprentice numbers as they will not have to travel so far for training.
