CSQ has launched a new app which has been built specifically with tradies in mind.
 
The myCSQ app is available for free download from iTunes and Android stores, and offers a range of features to help tradies track their training and build resumes using their phone.
 
The app means tradies and apprentices can capture their training and work experience on the go, recording details from each job site straight to their phone.

With the touch of a button, you can send your resume to prospective employers, request an endorsement, and tag your status, skills and location.

The app includes a jobs board (powered by BUSY At Work) and allows tradies to share information and connect with each other using and online message board. Users can post questions and seek advice and in the Tips and Tricks section of the app, tradies can post how-to-videos and instructional photos.

The app’s news feed and events calendar will help keep building and construction workers up to date with the latest industry developments and trends.

CSQ’s CEO Brett Schimming said the app would help construction training in Queensland to move into an exciting new era.

“We wanted to connect with people who are taking part in training or are out on the tools. Our app means we can be in the pockets of our industry.

“Tradies usually have their phones with them, which means they can quickly record details using the App and avoid scratching their heads trying to remember names and job details at a later date.

“The myCSQ app has been made with existing workers in mind but will also be useful for anyone starting out in the construction industry, like school leavers and apprentices.

“Those who are starting out in the industry will find the collaborative aspect of myCSQ particularly useful, as they can post questions and seek advice from experienced tradespeople,” he said.

Brett said the new app was part of CSQ’s focus on supporting tradies across the state.
