Civil Train Monarto Zoo Project


Twenty-five job seekers will gain civil construction traineeships through an innovative training project involving the Wild Africa expansion project at Monarto Zoo.


The project supports people to gain a Certificate II in Civil Construction while contributing to what will be an iconic South Australian tourist attraction.

Through this project, led by the Civil Contractors Federation with Zoos SA, 36 South Australians will participate in pre-vocational training. Participants undertake training and ensure it’s the right path for them to lead to 25 traineeships.

Developed in consultation with the Governor’s Aboriginal Employment Industry Clusters Program, the project includes 20 Aboriginal participants.

The State Government has provided more than $500,000 funding for the project including accredited training, non-accredited training, mentoring, and equipment hire.
