Excellent training provider. I completed my Certificate IV in Building and Construction over 18 weeks. Mal was an excellent trainer and helped me through understanding all aspects of the units. The structure is challenging, but having the ability to complete the course after work hours made this more convenient. I would highly recommend CTI.

I completed Cert IV in Building a couple of years ago. The course was well defined and notes provided were clear and easy to follow. Fast forward to now and after a couple of house moves my course certificates are in a "safe place." I contacted CTI and they again were extremely helpful in providing replacements. Exceptional training company.
