Canberra Light Rail: is your business skills-ready?

9 May 2016

The Canberra Light Rail project is set to deliver 3560 jobs for the Canberra region during the three years of construction. This is a massive opportunity for local businesses not only in the construction industry, but also for those providing ancillary services such as information technology, legal and accountancy.

Is your workplace equipped with the right skills to take advantage of the demand ahead?

The Light Rail Business Link Program in partnership with local specialists is assisting businesses to prepare for the opportunities presented by light rail.

Apprenticeship Support Australia (ASA) can help you develop a workplace training plan to maximise training opportunities across your business. At no cost to you, ASA consultants can advise you on the latest training packages for nationally-recognised qualifications, modes of learning delivery and Government incentives. Once training is underway, ASA also provide tailored mentoring support for employers and employees to ensure successful completion.

With the turning of the first sod for the Canberra light rail project some months away, there is still time to ensure your workforce is “project ready”. Give ASA a call on 1300 363 831 or visit to get started.

Apprenticeship Support Australia is contracted by the Australian Government to provide a complete apprenticeship support service.
