We strive for excellence in Vocational Education & Training and aspire to actively encourage our new Apprentices / Trainees to exceed industry expectations so they can reach outstanding success, showcasing the many skills of their chosen industry craft.

With over 26 years of experience providing training and support to the industry and an established and integrated network of support services our training programs ensure that your employees are:

  • trained and competent
  • up-to-date with current industry trends and technologies
  • familiar with your business and its operations

This ensures you have:

  • high staff retention rates
  • a collaborative work environment
  • effective and efficient workers

Traineeships and Apprenticeships are available through ACFA and can be tailored to meet your company’s individual needs, making it relevant to your workplace and your business requirements.

The point of difference between ACFA’s program and other providers is the one-on-one, hands-on training their Industry Specialised Trainers give each apprentice. We customise training plans to suit the apprentice’s specific learning styles and are flexible around the employer’s schedule whilst ensuring the training meets the requirements of accredited training..

ACFA’s trainers travel to the employer’s workplace, which saves time for the apprentice but also allows the apprentice to learn on the tools and machinery they use every day.

The “we come to you” service offering provides a personalised training and assessment model. In addition, rolling intakes ensure apprentices can commence sooner, without having to wait for the next round of enrolment days.
