We are passionate about effecting change and connecting communities and businesses in a mutually beneficial way

Who We Are

Established in 2013, ECB is an Indigenous, privately owned business founded in response to the training and labour hire needs of the Northern Territory. By 2015, ECB had become a Registered Training Organisation, answering demands for a flexible, efficiently delivered training service for the construction industry.

Today, ECB has an expansive set of training capabilities and a nationwide scope. Through the founders’ extensive understanding of industry and community, they have developed a centralised platform to deliver effective training solutions to upskill local workforces, meeting the needs of the new employment market.

Our Vision

ECB was founded on the vision of providing community opportunities through training excellence. Built from more than 20 years’ experience working across Australia, we aim to deliver change in the lives of individual trainees whilst ensuring high-quality outcomes for industry. Centralising the services of a GTO and RTO, we combine vocational education with on-the-job training – creating training solutions that meet the needs of the new employment market.
