About CTI

Innovative educational pathways

Construction Training Institute is an Australian RTO serving the community through the development of skilled trainers and industry leaders. The business specialises in providing innovative educational pathways to fast-track the learning and qualification process for each individual, assisting them to reach their career goals sooner.

Construction Training Institute’s flexible, tailored approach to training began in 1999 when director Graeme Lynch realised that the traditional classroom learning environment could be superseded by a more user-friendly workplace training system. Graeme, a senior TAFE teacher who had been actively training since 1974, set about pioneering a company that could offer employers the benefits of cost-effective and up-to-the-minute onsite training for their workers conducted by skilled trainers and applied in a real world setting.

This approach proved to be a hit with both employers and students alike, especially those students who had previously experienced difficulties in the classroom and those with a preference for hands-on learning. Without the constraints of the group learning environment, students were able to accelerate over areas where they had existing skills and knowledge, thereby reducing the study time required to complete their qualification. Students were also able to received personalised attention and assistance from instructors in the topics that were less familiar to them, resulting in higher student completion rates and greater levels of customer satisfaction.

Extending the market

While Graeme’s initial focus was on providing quality training solutions for the construction industry, Construction Training Institute has since evolved to cater for a wider market segment including the vocational education and training industry, mining sector, and information technology arena. The company’s aim continues to be that of creating an enjoyable and supportive learning experience for each client by combining the most current and efficient training technologies and qualification pathways with outstanding customer service and personalised attention.

Skilled team of dedicated trainers

A significant part of the success of the business can be attributed to the quality of the people who stand behind the brand. Construction Training Institute boasts a skilled team of dedicated trainers and staff who are committed to going the extra distance for each learner to ensure that they receive prompt and courteous assistance and that their time with Construction Training Institute is a fun, friendly and enjoyable experience. With this can-do spirit infusing the company, Construction Training Institute is continually forging new technologies that will support streamlined, efficient training, and realise the overarching vision of becoming the international ‘gold standard’ for flexible learning and education.
