Training Industry Partners

Connexis is the Industry Training Organisation (ITO) for New Zealand's infrastructure industries, offering national qualifications, which include water treatment, wastewater treatment and water reticulation.

We work with industry to provide nationally recognised qualifications to build a skilled and productive infrastructure workforce. Qualifications are achieved through a mixture of on the job training and attending courses. The training programmes offer growth and development, along with recognition of skills for a structured career pathway.

In 2016 new training delivery options were scoped to include e-learning/online platforms. These will be further tested during 2017 with a pilot programme delivering the Pathogens unit standard being offered.

Whether you're an employer looking to upskill your staff, or are working in the industry and want to gain recognition of your skills, we can help. Talk to us today to find out more.
