Our courses are popular with companies that want to train their teams, and with individuals who want to upskill.


Community support

SMS Training Institute is also establishing links with youth, unemployment and indigenous organisations, aiming to deliver skillsets that can assist with many employment opportunities.


Induction Training

SMS Training Institute is qualified to deliver staff induction training for our FIFO customers and looks to extend this service to other major projects. This benefits customers by eliminating site costs and loss of productivity time when workers arrive.  Each employee arrives on site inducted and ready for work.


“The SMS Group Services is justifiably proud of the training facility. Our team and I welcome your inspection of the centre.”

Mark Welsh, Director SMS Group Services
