DGT has partnered with Lives Lived Well to create a ‘live’ farm onsite at their Logan facility called Nurture Farm.
A Queensland training company says building tiny homes may not only help train the next generation of tradies but also provide a short-term solution to regional Australia's housing and skills shortages.
"Mals got a great reputation in town for a start and I knew that, he was perfect, did everything I wanted him to do, there was no pressure, he was great to deal with and knew exactly what our wants and needs were whilst he fulfilled them exceptionally well. Highly recommend choosing DGT as Mal and the team take a lot of the stress and worry out of it, giving you more time to concentrate on your business to keep the wheels in motion so to speak."
Russell Hughes - Host Employer (Hughes Car Sales)
"I chose DGT because I have heard excellent reviews about its services and how well it's trainee/apprentices have done. I have found that my employment consultant (Amanda) has always been there for me. She has given me advice on my traineeship work, she has assisted me with any issues I have had within the workplace and mostly she has been there for me if I ever needed someone. I believe that nothing needs to be changed. I truly think that DGT has given an incredible experience. I am extremely happy with DGT and constantly give a positive review about them."

"Since the beginning of operation, CS Energy's Kogan Creek Power Station has utilised DGT as the supplier of choice for all our Traineeship and Apprenticeship needs. Staff are always accessible, consistently provide a high level of service and have an unfailing willingness to assist. CS Energy and Kogan Creek Power Station look forward to a continued and valued partnership with DGT moving into the future."

"Sarah Wilson, a local trainee with DGT said her traineeship is a great way for her to not have to pay for her qualification. “Also my on-the-job experience will allow me to take this qualification and turn it into a career. It’s exciting to go to work every day — I am constantly learning new things, plus I get lots of on-the-job support. For those who are wishing to make a career change or are beginning their journey into the workforce, talking to one of the DGT's knowledgeable field officers is the best way to gain a better understanding of their training programs.""

"On site support is so incredibly valuable to a well rounded training experience. Our host employer James was impressed with the support DGT could offer to his apprentices saying "DGT came out to visit our apprentice all the time. DGT was extremely helpful and always emailed to let us know they were coming to visit.""
James W. - Host Employer (Wambo Feedlot)
"I chose DGT because they gave me a good start of what I want to do. They will focus on your interests and your future goals. Thank you for taking me in and helping me find something I love doing."
Liam S. - DGT Trainee
"DGT have a good reputation, are very highly regarded and offer good training packages. Amanda is very professional and always listens to what we have to say. If she doesn't know something, she will research it and get back to us very promptly"
Nicholas C. - DGT Apprentice
"I have been using Downs Group Training (now DGT) for around 20 years. I see the arrangement as a triangle where DGT find the apprentice, we train the apprentice as the host employer and the apprentice gains a qualification at the end of the contract. DGT provides safety equipment, arrange all the college, ensures paperwork and profiles are up to date and frees up my time to focus on my business."
