Construction industry skill sets

To help people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Victorian Government is offering free, nationally accredited short courses to help you learn a new skill, reskill or upskill. 

With many of Victoria’s major infrastructure projects in the pipeline, employers are actively looking for more skilled people. Doing one of these free skill sets gives you the chance to get back into the workforce or find a new job in the construction industry.
