Multi Industry Training Specialist

Ochre Training sits under ASQA as an RTO and is therefore able to provide national training solutions.

Ochre Workforce Solutions encompasses Ochre Training which is a registered training Organisation (RTO 52506) that specialises in pre-mobilisation and training courses for individuals and employers across several of Australia’s employment sectors.

Our selection of short courses and qualifications are directly relevant to the site requirement needs for most of our client companies and their industry requirements, across Australia. Based in Burswood, Perth Western Australia, we offer a range of both accredited and non-accredited short courses, from first aid, forklift and 4WD training to cultural awareness, personal development and specific ‘training to work’ programs right through to our selection of Cert II qualifications. Our Working at Heights course has been endorsed and authorised by Rio Tinto, whom we offer the Rio Tinto Gap Training course for.

Ochre is pleased to provide several industry specific Cert II full qualifications in the areas of construction, civil construction, resources and infrastructure, cleaning and a host more. The addition of these qualifications to our scope provides our client companies with relevantly skilled personnel for their roles and provides our labour force with career paths that extend far beyond the entry level point, and onto trade qualifications in most cases if required. Our highly skilled instructors deliver class-based, online and remote delivery training to the highest industry standards either at our Burswood training centre or on the client’s site, anywhere around Australia.

‘Training to Work’ Unit

Ochre utilises the scope, experience and expertise of both our RTO, Ochre Training and our Employment Unit to solidify our claim to be the leading specialists in the ‘training to work’ arena. At Ochre we provide customised ‘training to work’ programs that are linked to guaranteed jobs.

With high success rates for the delivery and outcomes of our intensive and extensive pre-employment programs so far in the areas of facilities management, trainee machine operators, admin, scaffolder and construction training, all of which lead to guaranteed jobs for the participants. Using our large network of high profile and large client companies, Ochre has the capacity to secure guaranteed jobs at the first instance; we then carefully select the most suitable candidates in partnership with the client companies to enhance the prospects of long-term retention rates to benefit both the employer and the employee.

The Ochre specialist ‘training to work’ unit that has the sole focus of rolling out these programs all year round to provide the maximum employment opportunities for Indigenous people which is in turn assisting the Government with its ‘Closing the Gap’ initiative. Who better to deliver these programs than an Indigenous business with a focus on improving the future of the Indigenous community across Australia, through nationally recognised training and legitimate employment opportunities?


Our service is based on the standard labour hire models; however we offer the following benefits which set us apart from any competitor:

  • Ochre can provide a 100% Indigenous workforce if the client company requests.
  • Ochre considers safety to be an extremely high priority, and this is embedded into the culture and mindset of our workforce.
  • Ochre is able to work with the client company to ensure all selected candidates have all compliances in place to achieve site clearance.

  • Our mentoring will be available to our personnel even after they have been transferred over to the host mining company. This is part of our cultural obligation to ensure the long-term success of our workforce.
  • We undertake all pre-screens, reference checks, compliance needs and all medical and urinalysis screens.
  • Ochre has mandatory personal development workshops for all new starters across all of our Industries.
  • Our workforce is encouraged to acknowledge their roles and responsibilities as role models to their families, as well as within the Indigenous community in general.
  • Ochre encourages the host mining companies to take ownership of the personnel after a six-month period to provide long-term and permanent employment for those candidates.
  • Ochre wishes to be known as a vehicle for the eager, willing and able Indigenous people to eventually be placed into permanent employment roles. These roles will assist the candidates to forge long-terms careers within their industry of choice.
  • Ochre wishes to be known as the labour hire provider of choice when it comes to provision of quality supply of people, as needed, for all of our valued clients across many different industries. Labour hire is an excellent vehicle to get Indigenous people into eventual long-term employment across many diverse industries.

Full Qualification Courses

Ochre now has the capacity to delivery full qualifications for the following courses:

  • Cert I and II Leadership Development
  • Cert II Retail Services
  • Cert II Construction
  • Cert II Civil Construction
  • Cert II Resources and Infrastructure
  • Cert II Cleaning Operations
  • Cert II Warehousing Operations

These courses can be completed as part of our ‘training to work’ programs at our Burswood training centre, as school based training programs or as pre-app courses to prepare for employment as apprentices or trainees.


Traineeships combine practical experience at work with structured training. Traineeships are usually in non-trade areas such as hospitality, business, manufacturing and health.

As a trainee, the employee enters into a formal training contract with an employer that leads to a nationally recognised qualification. They spend most of the time in paid employment, learning practical skills on the job before putting them into practice. The rest of the time is spent in structured training, at a registered training organisation like Ochre Training, or being assessed in the workplace.

The training requirements are part of the training plan which is negotiated between the employer, the trainee and Ochre. Traineeships are now competency based. This means they can be completed earlier if the trainee can show they have reached the skills levels required for the industry.
