About Electro-Training Institute

Welcome to the Electro-training Institute. Our key trainers combined experience both in the industry itself and training for the industry exceeds well over two decades. Our Chief Trainer has had a great many years experience both here in Australia and overseas in Europe and America and as a teacher in the vocational education sector.

With our vast experience whilst working within the industry we identified many shortfalls in traditional formal training and the Electro-training Institute was formed as a result, allowing us to rectify these industry training shortfalls.

  • Industry driven focus

It is important to us that students are able to "do the job right". We not only ensure that individual student needs are met through course design we also ensure that the course content is relevant to today's industries. We offer a flexible approach to when and where courses will be held and we will do our best to accommodate any training request whether it be in our training rooms or on-site in remote locations.
