PEER is a non-profit industry-based registered training and group training organisation that delivers nationally accredited training packages to meet South Australia’s skill development needs.

PEER’s Chief Executive Officer, Peter Nolan, said that back in 2016, PEER set a bold vision to become Australia’s leading learning organisation. A goal that was achieved when it was recognised as the Small Training Provider of the Year at the 2018 Australian Training Awards.

“Over the past couple of years, we have taken PEER to the next level of: operational excellence, world class learning resources, student centered learning and caring for our students,” Peter said.

“We are honoured to be recognised as a leading learning organisation.

“PEER apprentices consistently win state and national awards and seeing PEER graduates become success stories in their own right, is exceptionally rewarding.”

As a group training organisation, PEER is the largest employer of apprentices within the building and construction industry in South Australia, with more than 400 apprentices and trainees. It also delivers pre-vocational training, VET in Schools, short upskilling courses and skills recognition.

PEER’s training is customised and personalised to accommodate the learning styles of each student delivered by qualified professional trainers.

PEER has been a member of the Australian VET Alumni since 2018.
