Statement of Purpose

Earthworks Training and Assessment Services Pty Ltd was founded in 1997 to provide quality training and assessment services across Australia. The company’s primary purpose and guiding principles have never changed and the company has since evolved as a leading and respected professional registered training organisation and a proactive advocate for the traffic management, civil construction and road infrastructure industries. 

Novel Coronavirus (COVID -19) & Training 

Yes -  we continue to provide specialist traffic management training and assessment critical to the continuity of industry and infrastructure to the Northern Territory.. though please read on....

We have shared responsibilities to minimise the risk and spread of COVID-19 for the health and well-being of ETAS employees, students, our families, friends, community and the global village. As a business / PCBU we have implemented strategies to manage the logistics navigating the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure we have business continuity to safely deliver traffic management training and assessment without compromising the quality and integrity of our services.   

We remain vigilant monitoring the COVID-19 situation and adhere to advice provided by the relevant Australian and State Government authorities for the delivery of training and assessment. To comply with COVID-19 physical and social distancing and hygiene control measures the number of people attending our training and assessment courses has been reduced, subsequently positions are limited.

Control measures implemented are logistically and reasonably practical to minimise the spread of and risk of exposure of COVID-19 to employees, students and visitors while on site.

NT and WA border restrictions due to COVID-19 means our  WA Kimberley Campus is closed so delivery of Main Roads Western Australia Temporary Traffic Management Courses are on hold until further notice.

Access, Inclusion & Foundation Skills

Potential course participants are encouraged to make ETAS trainers and assessors aware of any specific learning requirements to ensure learning strategies are discussed and are self determining - the ultimate goal being to achieve maximum participation, capacity and capability during training and assessment sessions.
