Our Training

Blue Dog Training apprenticeship training has been meeting industry’s needs for more than ten years. We’ve combined the tried and true apprenticeship model with technology and have increased the overall learning experience for today’s apprentices. Blue Dog’s innovative approach has all the benefits of traditional training plus high quality flexible support as and when you need it. All Blue Dog apprentices and their employers get a designated industry current trainer that they deal with for the duration of the trade - we won’t stuff you around.

Apprenticeship Trades offered for study

I found the Blue Dog method of training really suited me and it was great to have such a knowledgeable trainer like Dave Porter all the way through my apprenticeship. Dave was always available to help me out and give me encouragement. My employers Aaron and Ken were also supportive every step of the way. They are both craftsmen with great skills who are always keen to share their knowledge and skill.

Having the flexibility to be able to complete training modules in a time that suits me is great and the assistance available is always friendly and helpful.

Apprentices

Our blended mode of delivery means you gain practical skills on the job and complete interactive and dynamic lessons online. Your trainer will help you from the start to the end of your apprenticeship and also assist you once you have completed your apprenticeship when required. Our system is truly self-paced with individual training plans developed to suit you and your learning style with one on one support as and when you need it. This means that you stay on the job with training customised to suit your needs. Mature age apprentices or people with existing skills are able to progress more quickly using our unique Recognition of Prior Learning program that has been designed by tradies for tradies.

Employers

We understand what you want out of an apprenticeship. All our trainers are trade qualified; they were once apprentices, they have employed apprentices, they are well regarded in industry, have years of experience and are still on the tools from time to time. As the employer, you will be allocated a single point of contact - this is also your apprentice’s designated trainer for the duration of the apprenticeship. The trainer will develop a working relationship with you to ensure Blue Dog meets your training needs. Our trainers are also skilled at creating solid working relationships with apprentices to keep them motivated and improve their chances of a successful completion. With Blue Dog Training your apprentice’s training is structured to suit your workflow. This means your apprentices are not lost to block training when you need them on the job.
