Stand out as an nbn trained supplier
Become an nbn trained supplier
The nbn® New Developments training program will help ensure new development designs and installations are built right first time and to the correct standards, fast-tracking the certification process and getting works underway sooner.
The program trains suppliers on the design and installation standards required with the nbn® Multi Technology Mix (MTM). There are two training bundles available:
Bundle 1 - Design
- Pit and pipe design module
- MDU (Multi-Dwelling Unit) pathway design module
Bundle 2 - Installation
- Pit and pipe installation module
- MDU (Multi-Dwelling Unit) pathway installation module (launching mid-2022)
Each training bundle costs $250 (GST inclusive) and features:
- A 3-year licence, after which each nbn trained supplier will need to renew their registration.
- Completion of each of the online assessments, allowing for two attempts per module.
- Completion of the installation practical assessment, allowing for one attempt per module.
The completion of both the online knowledge assessment and the in-person practical assessment is required to successfully attain the installation module.
How to complete the training
How to register
Registration for the training program must be done through the enAble™ portal. Download and follow the registration guide (for new or existing enAble™ participants).
We encourage all professionals who work on nbn New Developments to consider completing the training – this includes both SDU and MDU (Single-Dwelling and Multi-Dwelling Units):
- Pit and Pipe designers or developers that are competent with AutoCAD and the nbn guidelines.
- Pit and Pipe installers that are competent installing in accordance with nbn standards.
- MDU pathway designers that are competent with AutoCAD and the nbn guidelines.
Upon successfully completing any of the New Developments training program you will become an nbn trained supplier in that field (Pit and Pipe designer, Pit and Pipe installer or MDU pathway designer), with the accompanying ‘nbn trained’ logo that you can use to promote your skills. You will also feature on the nbn trained supplier list and you can start benefiting from fast-tracked reviews and approvals – set to launch in August 2019.
An 80% mark is required to pass the training assessments. You may re-sit the knowledge assessments up to four times. If you fail the training assessment after this, you will have to re-apply for the program – and pay the training fee again. Please note that the training fee is not refundable. The RTO will contact you directly to reschedule another assessment.
A fee of $250 (GST inclusive) per training bundle applies.
Once you have registered for the New Developments training, an invoice will be sent to the registered email address. If you have any enquiries or for more information, please send an email to: email@example.com.
Please note: Your registration is not complete until payment is made in full. You will not be eligible to be part of the nbn trained supplier list or have access to promotional material until registration is fully completed.
No. The New Developments training is nbn specific. Our training of individuals does not extend to training of the design or product itself, or to the company of which the individual is employed. It also does not reflect if an individual has the necessary industry qualifications.
