Focus on quality training outcomes
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.
