Nationally Recognised Training

Education In Building’s head office  is located in Queensland and we are proud to provide our training services throughout every State and Territory of Australia. We first gained RTO status in 2010 and it didn’t take long before we gained a reputation as a high quality training organisation who understands competencies relevant to Thermal Performance Assessments.

In addition, our training and assessment practices are informed by industry, and, they’re conducted by NatHERS qualified trainers with ‘real world’ current experience.

Nationally Recognised Training is, as its name suggests, is recognised throughout Australia. In other words, the ‘value’ or ‘worth’ of the certification you receive is identical. This is regardless of the issuing registered training organisation (RTO).

Education In Building caters for the provision of Nationally Recognised Training (NRT).

Note: The quality of training, however, does differ from one RTO and another. And this is where we excel. We provide high quality training at very affordable prices.

A specialised focus

We are proud to be a small RTO. In fact, our small size has enabled us to achieve continuous growth. As opposed to applying for registration in every conceivable area of commerce, we specialise in what we know and love.  And that, quite simply, is energy efficiency.

With this philosophy, we’ve found that doing things well just comes naturally.

Let us share our passion for energy efficiency with you  …
