Both around New Zealand and overseas, there is a constant demand for skilled tradespeople qualified in building, carpentry, plumbing and gasfitting, drainlaying, electrical services, and refrigeration and air conditioning.
Building, construction, plumbing and gasfitting suit hands-on, practical people who take pride in their work and are good team players. Whether you've just left school or you're keen to train for a new career, our courses let you start studying at a level that suits your skills and experience.
To support the growing demand in construction, we’re excited to launch a new area of study in construction management and quantity surveying. Find out more below.
Electrical trades are also highly sought after, with job opportunities ranging from electrical supply and maintenance and construction, through to electronics, data communications, computer network engineering and even factory robotics.
Refrigeration and air conditioning technicians are also in demand. You will need to have practical and hands on skills in mechanical, electrical and electronic systems, gas systems, atmospheric pressure and temperature.
