With construction set to boom in 2018, now is the time to make sure you are construction job ready.
3 things you can do to get you construction job ready:
Be up to date with industry requirements
To work on a construction site in Australia, the government have made it a compulsory requirement that you must hold a construction induction card (also known as a white card).
A white card must be obtained through a RTO (Registered Training Organisation).
The course can be sat before you have been guaranteed a job in the construction industry and the card does not expire as long as you don’t have more than a 2 year break from working in the construction industry, making it a valuable investment if you are considering construction jobs.
Strengthen your skills
A construction induction card is a basic requirement for working in the construction industry but there are many other training courses that you can do that require no previous experience to make you more desirable to an employer.
Use your contacts
Now is the time to touch base with any contacts you have in the construction industry and mention that you would be keen for some work if any suitable roles come up.
Star Training & Assessing are a Registered Training Organisation offers a range of construction industry-focused courses to individuals throughout Australia. For more information and to get ready for the construction boom, contact your local office.
