RTO No. 40239
The CCF SA has revolutionised the training and employment opportunities of those entering or already employed in Civil Construction and related industries delivering a declaration of trade in 2019 – this means there is now a structured apprenticeship pathway in to the industry, which aligns nationally to meet workforce development needs.

The Civil Apprenticeships and Careers Limited (CACL) Group Training Organisation (GTO) is a purpose built entity employing trainees and apprentices in the civil construction sector and placing them with industry to facilitate the completion of their training contracts.
