Connecting you with the skills & training you need

We don’t run courses directly, but rather work with registered training organisations all over Queensland to help you train in construction.

With a footprint all over the State, you can find an in-person, online or combination course to suit your schedule and location.

We’ll connect you with construction training and fund your course costs by at least 75%, to get you the  formal qualification you’ll need on site.

Cementing your career in construction

Boosting your training helps us with our mission to provide a skilled workforce for Queensland’s building and construction industry.

We’re committed to your training needs, whether you’re an employer, worker, apprentice, trainee or job seeker.

As a not-for-profit and industry-funded body, CSQ supports careers in the building and construction industry by:

  • Subsidising training
  • Promoting careers in construction

  • Providing thought leadership on industry issues

Take the next step in your training journey

We can kick-start your career too

Formal education might be taught in a classroom, but everyone knows nothing compares to in-person experience like you get with an apprenticeship or traineeship.

That’s why we offer three main pathways to connect school leavers with the construction industry –  Gateway to Industry Schools Program (Gateways), Try’aTrade, and Try’aSkill.

For career starters, we offer two pre-employment programs – Trade Start and Trade Ready – both designed to give you industry experience to launch your career.

Kick off your construction career

Courses come in all shapes and sizes

Much like the industry itself, our course range is diverse, with training falling into three main categories – Short Courses, Higher Level Skills program and Skills Assessment & Gap training.

So if you’re wanting to update your skills, achieve a nationally accredited qualification or bridge the gap between your current experience and a formal qualification, you’ll find a program to suit.
