In 2017, the construction materials testing (CMT) market calls for faster turnaround of tests with increased compliance and reporting to NATA, all on a lower cost per test base. Agile organisations are turning to workplace based practical training to upskill their lab teams at an operational level.

LTT has worked with key industry bodies, multinationals and small local businesses to develop a smarter, more engaged workforce. Since 2006, we have delivered customised training solutions in construction materials testing laboratories across Australia.

Our workplace training delivers long-term improvements for businesses, including:

  • Industry accreditation, including National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) compliance
  • Increased staff morale, retention and productivity
  • Improved market credibility
  • Access to financial incentives for investing in staff training

Leading Victorian construction materials suppliers, Mawsons and Sons, has had multiple workers complete their training with LTT. Quarry Technical and Training Manager, Wayne Douglas, is impressed with LTT’s “high level of service”.

As CMT specialists in sand quarries, hard rock and premixed concrete plants, Mawsons require contextualised training that is tailored to their specific needs. Wayne explains, “LTT’s training provides our employees with up to date qualifications, with a training program developed specifically for our company and which also meets NATA Laboratory Accreditation requirements.”

Construction materials specialists

With more than a decade’s experience in science industry skills, and more specifically, construction materials testing (CMT), LTT lead the way in specialised training to serve the needs of CMT laboratories.

We have organised workshops with Construction Material Processors Association (CMPA) to suit the demand for National Association of Testing (NATA) signatory units and provide detailed evidence of the training programs delivered to support compliance. We also deliver laboratory operations qualifications specialising in CMT, ranging from Certificate II to Advanced Diploma level, to build the skills and knowledge of your workers from entry to senior level.

Government incentives for businesses

Incentives, subsidies and rebates to businesses that invest in staff training are available throughout Australia. These incentives ensure up-skilling your workforce with LTT is a low-risk financial investment for your business. In some instances, the costs of training may be exceeded by the available rebates.
