Last year saw a lot of hard work in relation to continuous improvement of our training resulting in ASQA re accrediting our RTO for seven years, the maximum period attainable.The latest RTO training satisfaction survey conducted by the MTA on apprentices also showed an overwhelming 93.3% of apprentices were satisfied with trainer quality. This means that you can have confidence in either taking on a MTA apprentice or training your own through our RTO.

We also have spaces available in our Forklift Licence training courses running throughout the year. If anyone in your workplace requires this, please click here to access the MTA’s Events page and register for a course. Due to high demand, our Air conditioning courses are fully booked until September.
