Cert IV class photo 0116
The CSDAA would like to thank and acknowledge the recent training achievements of ten industry leaders from the sawing and drilling industry from across Australia.

Congratulations to Greg Berry, Tom Britchford, Brett Cleary, Anthony Cunningham, Paul Gambell, Scott Hanley, Mark Horne, Shane Roy, Kevin Smith & Catherine Thomson.

On the 9th January 2016 the first enrolment of candidates successfully completed and attained the training and assessment qualification Certificate IV- TAE40110.

This is an important milestone for the CSDAA training initiative and reaffirms our commitment to industry. Training & assessment is best served when delivered by experienced industry participants who are willing to share and work with the next generation of operators.

Phoebe Carroll from the RTO sent in a glowing reference and is a credit to the class overall.

“Just a quick email to let you know the group is all done and has left today with certificates in hand. You have an amazing bunch to get the ball rolling – they have worked very hard and have exceeded expectations- well done!”

The next training class is scheduled to commence in early April 2016 and the CSDAA is looking forward to enrolling the next class of ten candidates. The CSDAA encourages industry leaders with industry experience to attend and attain the necessary qualifications to deliver training & assessment.

To find out more information on what is involved in the certificate IV training course you can contact the CSDAA directly. Alternately you are welcome to contact any of the ten new trainers and discuss their experience firsthand.

New Course in Concrete Sawing and Drilling


The CSDAA has developed the new Course in Concrete Sawing and Drilling. The accredited course has been designed specifically for those working in our industry to gain a nationally recognised qualification.

The implementation of the course will require qualified trainers and assessors to work with participants and assess their work, through a registered training organisation (RTO).

The sawing and drilling industry will soon require suitably qualified trainers/assessors nationally with a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment to facilitate this training. The role of a trainer is to provide instruction and assessment for participants undertaking this course. Trainers and assessors with extensive industry experience, and the ability to share knowledge and skills, plus role model positive behaviors will be the foundation of the training course.

If you would like to be considered for future positions and join the select few that are experts in delivering training for the concrete sawing & drilling industry, go to www.training.gov.au today to find out more. Or, contact the Secretary of the Association at info@csdaa.com.au for further information.

Course Code: TAE 40110

Please note: The CSDAA has no input into the recruitment or selection of course trainers, the RTO conducts this process. This is only to advise that the positions will become available and some of the criteria that will need to be met.
