Trades and Sustainability

Our focus is to ensure industries have access to well trained, highly skilled tradespeople. This may be through an apprenticeship or people refreshing their skills to ensure they have the most current knowledge and work practices to bring to their workplace.

Trades include automotive, building and construction, engineering, electrical and electronics, plumbing and occupational health and safety.

Bendigo TAFE also offers a range of courses including agriculture, horticulture, conservation and land management and animal studies. These courses are delivered at the state of the art facility located at Charleston Road Campus in Bendigo.
