BCITO is the largest provider of construction trade apprenticeships in New Zealand. We are appointed by the government to develop and implement industry qualifications for the building and construction sector.

Warwick Quinn, Chief Executive, BCITO talks about what's in store in the near future for the industry and BCITO.

Training and qualifications to serve the industry

Central to BCITO is the collaborative, positive working relationships that we have with the industries that we represent. As the environment shifts, we continually look to improve our service to these industries to meet their future needs.

We arrange training and develop qualifications in a broad range of industries, as well as developing qualifications in construction management, architectural technology and quantity surveying. As one of the most successful educational institutions in the country, we are recognised for best practice training methods.

BCITO makes sure industry has enough well trained, competent people.
