Our trade-training programmes are conducted at our modern, purpose-built centre at the Wintec Rotokauri Campus in Hamilton. It is recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading most sophisticated trade-training facilities. 

We work closely with our industry partners in the Waikato region to ensure students are trained in the fields and disciplines that are in demand. Our facilities include an array of different labs, studios, and workshops resources. Students gain exposure to an extensive array of up-to-date equipment to gain practical skills that they will use on the job. These skills, combined with theoretical instruction from qualified tutors, ensure Wintec graduates are highly sought after by industry and are work-ready when they leave us.

The programmes on offer currently include the areas of carpentry; mechanical; automotive; electrical, plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying; as well as additional specialised qualifications for experienced tradespeople.
