Industrial textiles are everywhere! From tents and vehicle upholstery to trampolines and inflatable boats, this industry combines practical skills with plenty of challenges and exciting long-term career opportunities. 

The previous National Certificate qualifications in Industrial Textile Fabrication are expiring, however, the replacement New Zealand Certificate qualifications are listed on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework. MITO is currently working alongside industry to develop a new training programme that will lead to the replacement Level 3 qualification. This is expected to be ready for enrolment in September 2019.
