FITEC Aus­tralia Pty Ltd (for­merly FITEC Aus­tralia Inc) is one of the largest na­tional providers of vo­ca­tional train­ing and as­sess­ment to the for­est and tim­ber in­dus­try in Aus­tralia. It is reg­is­tered by the Aus­tralian Skills Qual­ity Au­thor­ity (ASQA) and de­liv­ers na­tion­ally recog­nised vo­ca­tional qual­i­fi­ca­tions and a range of short course train­ing across all sec­tors of the for­est and tim­ber in­dus­try, in­clud­ing sales, ware­hous­ing and lo­gis­tics. Es­tab­lished in 1998 as a not for profit in­dus­try as­so­ci­a­tion, FITEC is gov­erned by in­dus­try mem­bers. It came un­der the TABMA um­brella in April. FITEC’s fo­cus is on qual­ity train­ing out­comes rather than prof­its. It op­er­ates on a train­ing de­mand ba­sis there­fore it re­sponds quickly to train­ing de­mand and sched­ules train­ing based on the in­di­vid­ual cus­tomers iden­ti­fied needs. FITEC Aus­tralia recog­nises that the for­est in­dus­try is a ‘thin train­ing mar­ket’ which is dis­persed widely, of­ten in re­mote lo­ca­tions. It does not as a rule, sched­ule train­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and ex­pect em­ploy­ers to fit into that sched­ule, rather it con­sults with em­ploy­ers to en­sure of­fer­ings match the needs of clients. Although FITEC Aus­tralia is head­quar­tered in Queens­land, FITEC de­liv­ers train­ing on a de­mand ba­sis through­out Aus­tralia.
