Concreting Traineeship

A Certificate III in Concreting provides individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to work in the construction industry, specialising in the preparation, pouring, finishing, and curing of concrete structures. Graduates of this program are equipped to contribute to various construction projects where concrete work is a key component.

Possible Roles

Concrete Finisher: As a concrete finisher, you'll be responsible for ensuring the final appearance and texture of concrete surfaces. This involves tasks such as troweling, smoothing, and applying finishes to achieve the desired look and functionality.

Concrete Pump Operator: Concrete pump operators operate specialised equipment to transfer concrete from the mixing truck to the construction site. This role requires precision in controlling the flow of concrete and managing pumping equipment.

Concrete Cutter and Core Driller: Working as a concrete cutter and core driller, you'll use specialised tools and equipment to create openings, holes, and precise cuts in concrete surfaces for installation of utilities, expansion joints, or decorative purposes.

Formwork Carpenter: Formwork carpenters construct the temporary structures (forms) used to hold wet concrete in place until it hardens. They create the framework that defines the shape and size of concrete structures, such as walls, slabs, and columns.ctor: Building inspectors assess and ensure the compliance of structures with building codes and regulations. A Certificate III in Carpentry provides a solid foundation for this role's understanding of construction practices.

Years Experience in

Leading the way in real-world training for the Construction, Automotive and Engineering Industries for over 2 decades.

Awesome!! After coming from TAFE the training is so much better.
Awesome!! After coming from TAFE the training is so much better. Smaller classes better and more knowledgeable teachers who care about the students and more flexible learning (being able to do most of the work from home). TAFE felt like it was just there to keep apprentices there for as long as possible (spending 8 hours to do 2 hours of work) but here it’s all based around the student, come in for the morning to to finish up units then go back to work for the rest of the day.

Would definitely recommend to others
The staff were very friendly, trainer Carl made it very easy to learn what was needed and helped when I was struggling. Crane operator pat was very kind and made it easy to do the lifts. Amazing operator. Would definitely recommend to others and will be coming back to learn other skills. 👍
