We offer full training and mentoring to all our employees with opportunities to move up within the business via the LOC pathway. We also pride ourselves on providing a culturally diverse and open team environment. 


1. Level of Competency (LOC) Pathway

The certificates are run by BCITO and are NZQA accredited (around 90-100 credits). The training is done on site while you work. BCITO provides the curriculum and resources you need, while you learn onsite. A BCITO Training Advisor will visit you to ensure you are on-track with your study. The AAJ Apprenticeship is around 18 months long.


3. Inhouse Safety and Installation Training 

All our staff are very highly trained and require both inhouse and external training to be deemed competent to work at height, with machinery and carry out our installation procedures.
