Traineeships - a smart way to build your business

Workforce development is critical to your business growth and viability.

A traineeship is a perfect way to teach skills and knowledge for new and existing employees. 

Companies selecting DTE as their preferred RTO include Fulton- Hogan, City of Mandurah, Wormall, Abaxa, Robb Carr, GM Microtunnelling and more. We are working with more than 10 companies and their trainees to deliver certificates II, III and IV in civil construction, trenchless technology, and civil construction supervision.
