Training Services

IOGTA is committed to addressing the skills shortages facing the Indian Ocean Territories.


We understand that finding quality nationally recognised training to meet skills shortage needs in remote localities such as Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, is both expensive and time consuming. IOGTA solves this problem by acting on behalf of local employers and community members to coordinate solution based training programs.

IOGTA is a leading provider of Nationally Recognised Training in the Indian Ocean Territories for businesses and private individuals. Nationally Recognised Training provides formal recognition of industry-specific skills and knowledge.


IOGTA offers demand based nationally accredited training in the Indian Ocean Territories, either through our own registered training organisation or through partnership arrangements with mainland providers. We also provide non accredited training that help our communities to work more efficiently and gain some very necessary life skills


IOGTA' s training scope includes the following qualifications and units of competency, with further information, including formal entry requirements can be found when cllicking on the Find out more button in accredited training.


 What we do?


  •           Work with local employers and community members to establish training needs

  •           Source the best possible training solutions to meet these needs

  •           Arrange and coordinate appropriate training programs

  •           Enrol and process relevant paperwork

  •           In most cases IOGTA pays for trainer flights, accommodation, car hire and other relevant costs

  •           Provide quality training venues, with WI FI and smartboard technology



How much do training programs cost?


As indicated above, IOGTA usually pays for many of the training expenses associated with each course. The actual training provider cost is then split amongst the number of participants in each course, meaning that costs are variable and dependent on the number of participants. IOGTA also benchmarks its course costs against comparable remote localities in northern WA to ensure competitiveness.

We are here to help!


Whether you have a specific training requirement, would like to arrange a skills audit for your organisation or simply would like some training advice, IOGTAs team are happy to help.
