Not very easy to access all the in person trainings. Online trainings are very good.
The graduate program is 2 years. The first year includes the induction event (3 days in Australia), workplace team project, and a few training days in Auckland. The second year also has training days in Auckland. AECOM also has an online learning portal where you can access training resources on many different topics. So far I have picked up finance knowledge. It would be nice to have more technical training.
Pretty much all of the training is on the job
Can be tedious for some things, but general have scope to learn what i want within projects
Ethics training every year. Other training is based on the work you will be carrying out.
There are no structured team/discipline training schedules
Picked up some water related modelling
Most training is informal with the notable exception of health and safety training. Any formal training needs to be applied for well in advance.
Graduate program is good and plenty of opportunities to learn more
Grad induction was 3 days, also 2 extra grad training days each year. I would like more shorter training sessions to improve my technical skills
On-the-job training has definitely been the most valuable and I have learnt a lot of skills that will be valuable for the rest of my career. The formal grad training programme is useful but not nearly as much as on-the-job training.
The graduate program is unnecessary
Training is inconsistent and lacking in some areas. The only standardized training is in Health & Safety, otherwise there are generic training/tutorials in the University website for new starters to mindlessly skim through for their first couple of days.
Haven't had a lot of training yet
