Entry level positions on a site in the civil construction industry.
Completing the certificate gave me essential skills and knowledge to be able to confidently and comfortably step onto most civil construction sites and work safely. With the help of our awesome tutor my fellow students and I turned an empty patch of land into what is now the NZIHT Infrastructure Park. On our last week of the course all five students had multiple job offers in the industry and we were all working full time a fortnight after completing the course, myself being contracted to Port Taranaki through Whitaker Civil Engineering.
