25 Years of Aveling

We have two main training facilities, conveniently located in Jandakot and Karratha.

In July 2022, Aveling celebrated 25 years in business.

Over that time, we have grown from a single training room offering mine-site safety inductions, to one of the largest and most respected private Registered Training Organisations in Western Australia.

We have provided training, development and consulting to hundreds of Australian and multi-national organisations, state and local government entities, and have seen over a million enrolments on our courses.

This year, we are celebrating all the milestones that brought us to where we are today, all of the people who helped us along the way, from our employees, to our corporate clients, individual learners and all the relationships we have built during the past quarter of a century.

We are celebrating by looking back, looking forward, and bringing you all with us with special offers and celebrations along the way.
