We are always on the look out for any solid up-skilling or entry level opportunities and during our recent trip to Vicco we met with a company called MMC Group and they filled us in on the Victoria Training Guarantee funding scheme. The Victoria Training Guarantee funding scheme makes it possible for you to complete a 12 day Civil Construction Training program for just $150. Why we were glad to come across this little kicker is that whilst in Vicco we checked out the Major Projects Conference and it was nearly all about infrastructure projects. If you are looking for some fast and cheap up-skilling to help get you that foot in the door, this may be just the thing.
We mentioned MMC Group put us onto this deal, so we thought we would ask them to tell you all about it…
