Construction work in Australia rose in the September quarter of this year. However, there is a widening gap between the mining-relation engineering construction industries. Economist Peter Jones said that with major sectors in the construction industry caught in “the slow lane of a two speed economy,” the RBA would need to cut the rates even more.
With the results from MasterBuilders’ survey, figures confirm that there is a remarkable spin in how builders think about the work as commercial and residential construction related spending programs end. The business is tough and current state of the current world economy does not help one bit.
The negative growth trend of the construction industry should not only call for policy change, even workers in this industry should take additional courses if they want to succeed in the industry. There are several online training courses available that would be very helpful for every construction worker. Taking these courses would help them gain the edge they looking for in this very competitive industry.
Workers should not worry because there are still several opportunities available because there is a strong increase in the residential, commercial, and non-commercial building sectors of the industry. Mega-mining work and project ramps up and workers should definitely take this opportunity. Online training courses to obtain several certifications would help in acquiring construction work for these increasing projects.
All in all, a divide in the construction and building company along with the booming engineering construction in the mining boom, this should motivate several workers to enrol in several online training courses that would help them succeed in a weak post GFC economy struggling to recover.
