What is the ITAB apprentice scheme?

The Industry Training Association – Building (ITAB) apprentice scheme is a NZCB initiative that draws on the knowledge and expertise of polytechnics, large construction companies and employers throughout New Zealand.

ITAB provides you with a broad range of training courses covering professional skills and practical, on-the-job training with employer builders. Students are taught and assessed by professionals with years of industry experience. This means you gain a better, more relevant range of skills that future employers can rely on.

ITAB offers:

  • Training by a qualified educator.
  • The chance to network with other apprentices.
  • Building site time with your employer.
  • Learning flexibility – block courses or night school.

Every new first year apprentice who enrols into the ITAB Apprenticeship Program from the 1st of February 2017 will receive a starter kit to get them sorted thanks to ITM!

  • Free tools & accessories
  • Branded clothing & apparel
  • Exclusive deals on heavily discounted
