Nationally Recognised Building and Construction Courses

Capital Training Institute has built its reputation over 9 years as the training organisation “Where top tradies become top builders.” When you join a CTI Construction class, you are studying among tradies, labourers, and other workers interested in earning their builder’s licence, becoming a manager, or starting a construction company of their own.

The construction programs are delivered through a live-streamed virtual learning platform. Each qualification has one workshop per week, as well as self-study and assessments. All classes are held after work hours between 5 PM and 9 PM AEST, so you can complete the qualification while working during the day.
