We're for better
industry engagement.

Our mission cannot be achieved without constant engagement with our core industries. We are dependent on our close relationships with members, employers and employees as well as those who provide training and those seeking its benefits to drive improvement in skilling and training.

As we continue to grow our networks, the outcomes from our engagements assist the Resources Training Council to set its strategic direction to ensure that the organisation remains representative and relevant to the resources industry.

We're for better people.
