About CTI

Our History

CTI was founded and pioneered by veteran trainer Graeme Lynch. It is a story of innovation and a unique vision for a better way of learning.

In 1999, Graeme realized that the traditional classroom learning environment could be superseded by a more user-friendly workplace training system.

A former senior TAFE teacher, he set out to 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.

It was a hit with both employers and students alike! This approach particularly benefitted students who had previously experienced difficulties in the classroom or had a preference for hands-on learning.

Flexible and personalised, students were able to accelerate over areas where they had existing skills and knowledge reducing the study time required to complete their qualification. Students received assistance from instructors in the topics that were less familiar to them, resulting in higher student completion rates and greater levels of customer satisfaction.

The legacy of tailored and flexible training is the hallmark of the “CTI experience” today.

While Graeme’s initial focus was on providing quality training solutions for the construction industry, CTI now caters for a wider market segment including the vocational education and training industry, mining sector and information technology arena.

Our Present

Present day at CTI is hugely exciting. Innovation in training and practical technologies continues to drive progress as the construction industry requirements continues to change.

CTI currently conducts workshops in three permanent facilities located in West Sydney, Hunter Valley region and Port Macquarie.

CTI also has a Mobile Training Centre (MTC), which is a state-of-the-art, purpose built, 6m long black and silver enclosed trailer with gazebo. This MTC covers training in Gold Coast, Ballina, Maclean, Coffs Harbour and Wollongong for certain trades.

Each facility is equipped with tools and supplies/materials to deliver the full scope of practical components required for a complete qualification.

CTI also joins Bunnings stores and local businesses in a community-focused alliance, to host the MTC around the country, bringing training to local tradies and students.
