DTWD Funded Training

AIWT offers a range of government subsidised courses and funding opportunities through Jobs and Skills WA. We work closely with individuals, trainees, and employers to establish new and existing training opportunities.

This may be in the form of a Traineeship under an employer or as an individual student under Priority Industry Training (PIT).
