G&H Training Limited is a leading NZQA registered and accredited private training provider. We specialise in delivering quality training for trades.
Established in Hawke's Bay in 1989, we have training venues around the North Island delivering primarily carpentry training, with automotive and plumbing in some venues. We provide training pathways between school and industry for a range of learners. Some of our learners start while at secondary school, some come as school leavers, and some study with us while they are employed or completing apprenticeships. We offer a variety of full time, part time and short courses at our venues, and e-learning that people can study elsewhere.
At G&H Training we believe life is about the challenge of achievement.
We encourage and challenge our students to achieve personal standards of excellence, in a supportive learning environment where there is respect for the individual and cultural differences of all students and staff. G&H specialises in training for trades, and our passion lies in providing our students with the knowledge and practical skills needed to make an active contribution and have a life-long career in today's exciting industry.
We invite you to view our vocational training options and to contact us if you require further information about any of the courses we offer.

As a learner with G&H Training:
We guarantee you professional, individually supported training delivered by our qualified tutors. You will have your own Individual Training Plan to help you to progress and stay on track to successfully complete your study.
You will learn both theory and practical elements on your course. All our venues have fully equipped workshops, so you can complete practical projects as part of your course, or to back up your theory learning.
You'll get opportunities to put your theoretical knowledge into practice. We encourage and support you to do work experience - once you have been assessed as "work-ready". This gives you the chance to prove yourself with an employer in a real job situation.
To help you get a job or apprenticeship, all our branches have a good network of industry contacts and we have a Modern Apprenticeship Service covering a range of construction trades. Click here to find out more about Modern Apprenticeships.
We have flexible start dates, so you can begin your study on almost any Monday of the training year.
We are proud to be able to offer a variety of courses some with no courses fees and others with low course fees.
