Fiona Kingsford, Chief Executive of industry training organisation Competenz, will present at CoLab 2019 the latest work on whether micro-credentials are the best way to prepare for a prefabricated future, alongside BCITO Chief Executive Warwick Quinn.

Each year it works with more than 3,500 companies throughout New Zealand to arrange apprenticeships and training for more than 20,000 learners.

Competenz has been working with PrefabNZ and BCITO to identify training needs for prefabricated construction and support workforce development in this space.
