The construction sector in Tasmania has welcomed the announcement from the state government of a new 2 week training course for people thinking about entering the trade.

Builders recently expressed fears that there weren’t enough skilled labourers to fill positions, particularly as construction starts to boom and The Master Builders Association urged the government to act fast.

The state government has responded with a Tafe-based training program which will be funded by TasTafe. At least 100 people will be trained for work in the construction industry.

These trainees must also complete White Card training, which is a prerequisite for work on a construction site.
