Whether you’re a local, regional, state or nation-wide business that manufactures, repairs or customises plant and equipment, or is involved in construction and infrastructure projects, we can provide all your workforce and training requirements including skilled, qualified and motivated staff and apprentices.

Why Skillinvest?

For more than three decades, our experienced consultants have been providing manufacturing and mechanical engineering apprenticeships in and around Melbourne for domestic and commercial sites.

We can provide and manage:

  • Mechanical engineering apprenticeships in:
    – engineering
    – fabrication trade and engineering
    – mechanical trade
  • Mechanical engineering traineeships in:
    – competitive systems and practice
    – management
    – frontline management.

For young people aspiring to work in the manufacturing and engineering industry, we actively encourage them to start their training and skills development while at secondary school. Many students who transition successfully into full-time mechanical engineering apprenticeships started training while at school completing VET in Schools, a structured work placement, school-based apprenticeship, or a combination of all three.

Skillinvest is also a Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code 4192) and delivers a range of nationally recognised mechanical engineering certificates and qualifications for your apprentices and existing workforce. Select from established courses or we can tailor a training package or course to suit your business needs.

Services we offer:

  • Recruit and manage someone for your business
  • Develop and train your existing staff
  • Mechanical engineering Apprenticeships and Traineeships
