The company has extensive training programs it is almost impossible to list them all. I am constantly learning everyday
Graduate, Canberra
Could do with some work
Graduate, Sydney
The graduate program covers a comprehensive list of topics which helped me shape my career. I have picked up useful communication and practical engineering skills, which are very unlike the technical/academic focus I was used to at the University. I am better at assessing the time expenditure for projects, and I am able to balance the time spent on learning v.s. the time spent on getting work done.
Graduate, Christchurch
We have a training budget however it is like trying to get blood from a stone which is disappointing. I know in other teams this is not the case and if they ask for training it is not to hard to get approval
Graduate, Melbourne
The graduate training program is very well run and excellent however the on the job/informal training lacks consistency. You only learn as much as you want to.
Graduate, Brisbane
Training is on the job for me.
Graduate, Adelaide
A lot of money is spent on soft and hard skill training. Software and Programs skills Oral and written Communication skills, project management skills. engineering skills, interpersonal skills

I went through the graduate development conference which has been very eye opening and beneficial.

Unstructured and random training.

The internal training is very generic, but my team has exceptional opportunities for furthering our skills.

Been working for 10 months and still no formal training has been allocated to me even though I need it for some of the work I do.

Graduate, Brisbane
Received some small formal training in old position, but everything else has been self taught
Graduate, Melbourne
Hands on learning in the field is best, and doing it yourself as someone explains how to works for me. I have learned time management, project management, business skills-dealing with subcontractors.
Graduate, Newcastle
Training is great, and there are plenty of opportunities to further your business or technical skills.
Graduate, Brisbane
Good focus on training (business priority), but poor execution. Formal training is a waste of time generally. Informal on the job learning opportunities are available if you seek them out.
Graduate, Brisbane
Mainly informal training. mainly design skills, learnt along the way. at the start of a job the manager will give an example of computations and go from there with any question along the way.
Graduate, Melbourne
Limited opportunities for training. The training I have done is very basic and boring, it's not detailed and doesn't really improve my skillset or understanding, just reiterates what I most often already know.
Graduate, Sydney
There are a variety of training programmes and company funded Project Management training (internal), with scope to continue to external accredited PM training
Graduate, Melbourne
Graduates program is excellent and is currently running a few webinars to try and build some skills in the current grads.
Graduate, Newcastle
The graduate program is not as highly structured as I understand many other large companies to be. There's still plenty of training and opportunities for development.

Multiple training videos/quizzes, field works briefings and professional courses
