A great network takes a great workforce
At nbn, we work with a number of Delivery Partners to help build, operate and maintain the nbn™ broadband access network – one of Australia’s largest infrastructure projects.
Our Delivery Partners need a skilled and capable workforce to help connect 8 million homes and businesses by 2020, and we estimate this team needs to nearly double over the next few years. The Industry Workforce Development Program was established in collaboration with our Delivery Partners to help grow and support a sustainable, and multi-technology skilled and capable team.

Training for nationally recognised qualifications
The Industry Workforce Development Program aims to provide workers with the necessary skills and knowledge to meet the demand and quality standards for the nbn™ access network. Our training programs are directly linked to the skill gaps needed to help build, operate and maintain the nbn™ access network. Training completed through our program is nationally recognised and lead to units of competency or full qualifications.
Accreditation assists nbn in verifying that workers have the vital skills, training and qualifications to work on the nbn™ access network. It’s a necessary step for all potential recruits to ensure they perform their roles safely and without harm to themselves, their colleagues or the environment.
enAble™ is an nbn online tool. enAble™ has been developed to:
- Capture and track training and accreditation information for all individuals working on the network
