Education and training is set to play a pivotal role in our economic recovery. To support the growth of our industry, Master Builders has secured more training subsidies. Under the NSW Government’s Smart and Skilled program, the subsidised places are in key building and construction qualifications. There has never been a better time to invest in the development of your skills and knowledge.

"If you want to get your contractor or building licence, start your own business, or get a promotion, Master Builders has the training you need. We now have access to more subsidised places in a range of our Certificate III and Certificate IV qualifications.  With these affordable opportunities, now is the time to take the next step in your career" says Craig Donovan, Director of Operations Master Builders NSW. 

Not only are our training subsidies available in Sydney, but they also extend to our regional areas. With access to our online learning and virtual classrooms, there is no reason why you can't take part in a course from anywhere at anytime.

About Skilling for Recovery:
Skilling for Recovery is a recent addition to the Smart and Skilled program, providing fee-free training. The key focus areas of Skilling for Recovery are:

  • to provide entry-level training for people looking to re-enter the workforce or who are looking for job security,
  • to support people who are at risk of unemployment due to a downturn of work or hours,
