TIV launch a new Building and Construction Workplace Training Facility, designed specifically for students enrolling in carpentry melbourne
The Trade Institute of Victoria (TIV) has opened a new Building and Construction Workplace Training Facility at 19-23 Paramount Road West Footscray. The facility will provide students with a full scale outdoor training area on which they will conduct the practical components of their carpentry courses in Melbourne. The area is large enough to build six temporary structures and incorporates an on-site classroom for the theoretical component of their training.
The facility is unique in that provides students with a far greater insight and more realistic understanding of building on-site as opposed to learning in much smaller scale classrooms/facilities. It is initiatives and projects such as this new facility that put TIV one step ahead of other RTOs in the industry with regards to education and training in building and construction.
The launch of the facility was a resounding success, with several key local dignitaries attending the opening and actively assisting with the launch. Councillor Cameron McDonald, (Mayor of Maribyrnong) and The Honourable Marsha Thomson MP (Local Member for Footscray) officially opened the new facility and unveiled an impressive plaque to commemorate the event.

Richmond AFL footballers including Jack Riewoldt, Sam Lloyd and Taylor Hunt, who along with eight other Tiger players are currently enrolled in TIV courses, also attended the launch as students actively working on their existing projects.
Furthermore, TIV has also just announced an exciting partnership with the St. Kilda Football Club, involving nine current listed players including Sam Gilbert, Josh Bruce, Tom Hickey and Maverick Weller, who will commence a group Certificate III in Carpentry course (similar to the Richmond model) on August 3.
TIV CEO John Macdonald said the launch of the new facility was a significant milestone in the company’s history. “We are very proud to be opening such an important facility for our students, and look forward to providing the best, and most realistic education and training possible for anyone wanting a career in the building and construction industry.”
More than seventy guests attended the launch, which included a guided tour of the facility, TIV branded gift bags, a well-orchestrated running sheet and an impressive spread for morning tea.
Bill Spencer, one of TIV’s most reputable and experienced Trainers, said the new facility was a fantastic outcome and provided an outstanding venue for TIV students to learn to their craft. “It’s a first class facility here in West Footscray, and will give the students the best opportunity to learn as quickly as possible in the most practical and realistic surroundings for courses in carpentry Melbourne.”
