Chisholm’s facilities have been purpose-built for industry. The National Precision Growing Centre is one of two controlled environment horticulture training facilities in Australia, and the Centre for Sustainable Water Management is the only facility of its kind in Melbourne. The Centre for Integrated Engineering provides a simulated manufacturing environment that has been endorsed by Engineers Australia.

Chisholm partners with a number of stakeholders to deliver beneficial projects, including working with the telecommunications industry to ensure a sufficiently skilled and trained workforce is available to roll out the National Broadband Network. Chisholm is the lead TAFE on the Victorian Government’s programme to address the skills needs of people affected by restructuring, with over 400 people enrolled in Chisholm’s courses in 2013 in order to reskill.
