Through the graduate program you have a lot of training which focuses on your soft skills. The majority of your technical training is on the job.
You can tailor your training to suit your professional and personal development needs and wants. courses are offered from personal branding to presentation skills and technical skills.
LearningLINK, an online module training is very helpful
Through the graduate program there was a structured learning program involving full-day and multiple-day courses on negotiation, presentation, personal brand and finance. They were provided by an external party and tailored to our company. All courses were valuable and offered a new perspective.
Mental health training/site specific training
Sporadic training, would like a bit more to happen. Have done safety training on cranes, scaffold, and various mental health things.
Graduate, Port Macquarie
Since beginning with the company I have completed my formal induction, along with an induction to a mine site (as part of a project) but have not received any formal training otherwise.
There are array of programs available. Most of these are short courses and therefore not all the information "sticks". It is always good to get the opportunity to learn new content and skills and the company gives plenty of opportunities to do this i.e. presentation skills, influencing skills, finance / excel refreshers.
Formal training has been great. Get paid for the time, can sign up for additional training - however you are running projects and will have to catch up on the work at sometime
The graduate course has a range of compulsory training that must be completed over the two year period. These include time management, site specific issues, software use, etc. I picked up good productivity skills from one course.
There are many training programs for graduates including the CiDD waterproofing and fire workshop as well as the construction planning workshops that run over a couple of months. I now understand about the design requirements for waterproofing and fire.
There are multiple courses, both compulsory and non compulsory. Each help you learn different skills. The company really does care about learning and development.
Amazing training opportunities.
The company offers a range of training courses and it is encouraged that graduates make use of these. Managers are reluctant to approve however as these courses get charged back to the project (when the project is working to a profit margin already).
Some is very helpful, others are a little irrelevant
Grad training has been disorganised but good quality when it does happen. Every second RDO (every month), the whole building company is encouraged to attend a training session of some sort eg. technical fire training, cultural awareness training, audit training.
Plenty of training - a lot compulsory in grad program. All interesting.
Comprehensive training program and lots of on the job training
There are regular training programs at the company but I find it hard to find time to attend.
LL provide an intense training program
