Tim has his eyes firmly set on a career in the Civil Infrastructure sector. Following in the footsteps of family members he has seen firsthand the opportunities the industry has to offer and he aspires to be a heavy machinery operator in the future.
“The Civil Infrastructure course is really good as it’s showing me the basics of what really happens in the industry. I enjoy the hands-on style of learning where we get to operate machinery in a safe and controlled learning way. I’m learning heaps in a relevant way and in a job I want to do”.
Tim likes the relaxed style of learning he receives from his tutor, Dave. “He has great work stories and real work examples, tips and hints on how to be more effective in the workplace”.
Tim is looking forward to getting stuck in on the construction aspect of the course working on sites as part of the work experience phase of the course and putting his new found skills and knowledge to the test.
