About Construction Skills Training Centre


The Construction Skills Training Centre (nationally registered training provider 1974),has been operating for more than 10 years. Following the re-modeling of new premises in 1998, we commenced training in 1999, at the fully equipped centre in Welshpool. The number of courses that we commenced with in 1992, where to approximately 45 courses today reflects our steady growth, culminating in an outstanding experience base with an understanding of our clients needs and requirements.



We are located on a one hectare property at 107 - 109 Radium Street in Welshpool which is 8 kilometres from the Perth G.P.O. The main building has been totally refurbished to offer the most up to date accommodation for students and staff. The work shop boasts two gantry cranes and enough space to allow us to conduct our training indoors in case of inclement weather. A three story steel structure has been erected with a personnel and materials hoist, enabling practical training. We have on site a Tower Crane for both commercial construction and off-shore operation. The CSTC boasts a comprehensive list of machinery to conduct training in Forklift, Telescopic Forklift, Elevated Work Platform and ample equipment to conduct scaffolding, rigging and dogging courses simultaneously. The premises are close to the Welshpool train station and to bus services which run along Welshpool road. In addition the training centre is adjacent to Leach highway and is in close proximity to Tonkin and Roe highways and the Graham Farmer Freeway which ends on Orrong Road. There is ample free parking.



We are active participants in the meetings and decisions of the Building and Construction Industry Training Council. This body is responsible for the formulation of advice to training authorities,the promotion of research and development and innovation in the training of construction workers as well as the promotion and funding of training for new entrants to the industry.



The Construction Skills Training Centre has achieved Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) of the West Australian Department of Education and Training.Our commitment to quality training extends to offering clients with previous experience the ability to have their skills recognised through offering Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and credit transfer.



We have a training facility second to none; however if it is more convenient to you to have training at your site at a time to suit you, we can arrange it.
