Our Services


The Local Government Training Institute (LGTI) is a registered training organisation that offers specialised training solutions to Local Government, Industry, and the general public. LGTI delivers training courses at our offices in Thornton NSW (located just outside Newcastle in the Hunter Valley), and can bring training direct to your team on-site. 

LGTI also offers distance learning qualifications, designed to meet the unique needs of Council employees, from a Certificate III to Graduate Diploma.

Established in 2001, LGTI is approved by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) to deliver nationally recognised training.

LGTI researches, develops and delivers compliant, coordinated training for council and industry employees. 

Our cost-effective training solutions have been tailored to meet the specific needs, requirements and accessibility of council staff.

We are able to customise training to the needs of your workplace or council, to suit organisational requirements, and offer both onsite and offsite training.
