Please describe the training programmes at your company and tell us what skills you've picked up.
I have been fortunate to receive a lot of internal training, both as a Project Manager and previously as Team Leader. In our specialism we hold monthly technical video conferences for presenting and sharing. Internally within Building Services we hold regular brown bag lunch sessions on different topics.
Really good internal training, recently completed project management course. Got to attend the full Consult Australia professional development seminar series a few years ago, and numerous external half-full day technical seminars.
Several to list over the years.
great graduate program
As a new grad, I have undertaken training to get to know the company, their values (particularly regarding safety) and the procedures they use. So far, this has been very straight forward. I know there will be future opportunities for further training and this is something I am looking forward to.
AECOM university is an online platform for all learning
Formal training is a bit much, I'm a firm believer of learning on the job
Have not started graduate programme yet, on the job training is very good
I don't think that there are enough technical seminars but that is a problem that is currently being fixed. They have internal project management and safety training which I have found beneficial in identifying and reporting of hazards, and successfully running jobs.
Specific training for certifications and on the job training
Mainly online training programmes and slide shows
Lot's of training opportunities
There is limited formal training. There is excellent informal technical training on the job. Most teams also have a semi-structured program of knowledge sharing, discussing lessons learned from current and past jobs.
Soft skills are Taught in the graduate program
GDP was postponed last year due to ePM rollout.
Regular safety training, both formal qualifications like a RIW card, and internal. A database of internal courses are available, but there is little opportunity to be able to sit down and do those, and it's hard to discern which have real value until you've done them.
Our online university encourages participation every quarter.
Only just started so grad program is yet to take off.
Little encouragement to get any additional training
Have not started the graduate program yet
