Blue Dog Training has been training apprentices for over 18 years and works with businesses by creating a seamless process from start to finish. Blue Dog provides unparalleled support with a flexible onsite training model that allows you to choose when employees complete their theory.
Our trainers are trade-qualified with relevant industry experience. They work with the apprentice and employer to develop an individual training plan. Theory is delivered through our online learning platform, and the practical development of on-site skills is documented using our Skills Profiler app.
Undertake your apprenticeship with Blue Dog's flexible training model to receive unparalleled support from a qualified trainer and remove the need to leave the worksite to receive training.
