Construction Training International Pty Ltd (CTI) was established in 1995 by Mr. Peter Patterson as a Registered Training Organisation to deliver training and assessment in the construction industry for construction equipment such as Cranes, Hoists and Earthmoving under the National Guidelines of Health and Safety.

CTI specialises in training for people working off shore on oil and gas platforms, and over time other highly experienced trainers and assessors with a background in the Construction Industry joined the organization, adding their wealth of knowledge and ensuring that CTI is a group continued to gain a strong reputation of quality and integrity within the industry.

Today CTI is based in Riddells Creek, North of Melbourne and is engaged in the business of undertaking assessments for competency certificates in Victoria and throughout Australia.

CTI issues National Equipment Operator Cards under NOHSC: 7019 and / or NOHSC: 1006 for forklifts, cranes, dogging, rigging, scaffolding, hoists, earthmoving equipment etc.

We suggest the use of log books to document training to all employee’s using plant and earthmoving machinery along with All Crane Licensing. We also offer refresher courses in all these areas.

CTI audits all Assessors in accordance with ISO9001.

Over the last 10 years we have grown to a group of nearly 70 active Trainers & Assessors and our scope has expanded beyond the Construction Industry into different fields. We now employ four permanent office staff to administrate and support the assessors and to issue qualifications.
