Building & Construction

The building and construction industry continues to grow in New Zealand

If you’re interested in problem solving and physical work, working with your hands and tools, machinery and equipment to do building, repair or maintenance work, or enjoy following and developing plans and specifications, then a career in this highly sought-after area could be for you.

We can support you throughout your career.

You can start with a pre-trade programme to offer you a clear advantage when you go out looking for a job or apprenticeship.

Then continue building your skills with NMIT's Managed Apprenticeship training and later, with supervisory and leading hand training for those in industry.

NMIT has a very strong construction department

  • Tutors are licenced building practitioners.
  • Our carpentry apprenticeships are supported by New Zealand Certified Builders (NZCB) and Industry Training Association Building (ITaB).
  • NMIT is a business member of New Zealand Certified Builders - the only Institute of Technology to hold this status.
  • NMIT is not only involved with NZCB but also Master Builders and Master Joiners.
  • NMIT students have strong representation in regional and national Apprentice of the Year competitions.
