MTC Training is a Registered Training Organisation, which commenced operation in December 2009. Catering primarily for individuals, significantly senior school students undertaking an apprenticeship pathway, MTC Training is co-located with Marcellin Technical College at Christie Downs, and has strong industry partnerships with local businesses.
Proud to become a Small Training Provider of the Year 2017 finalist in the SA Training Awards, MTC Training can boast success in providing excellent VET delivery.
In addition to the theory and practical aspects of training, the unique experience provided by MTC involves community based projects and practical immersion days. The integration of the VET program and School Based apprenticeships as part of a students’ SACE completion, provides seamless education and training.
Community projects include the design, fabrication and installation of bridges in the Shepherds Hill Reserve National Park bridge project for Eden Field Archers and the manufacture of ‘Funky furniture’ that was auctioned at the 2016 McLaren Vale Harvest Festival with all proceeds going to the McLaren Vale Community Hospital.
