Accelerate your career with a nationally recognised qualification!

Industrial textiles are everywhere! From tents, sails and vehicle upholstery to trampolines, marquees and inflatable boats – and the industry is looking for the next generation of fabricators.

Through MITO, you can get qualified on-the-job with the New Zealand Certificate in Industrial Textile Fabrication (Level 3). This training programme will provide you with the skills and knowledge to work safely and accurately fabricate a variety of industrial textile products – from canvas fabrication to motor trimming. Or, for those looking to develop their management skills, MITO’s New Zealand Certificate in Business (First Line Management) (Level 4), provides the perfect opportunity to progress your knowledge and skills in team management and development.

OFPANZ also offers incredible opportunities for MITO learners to be recognised in the industry through our annual Apprentice of the Year Awards. Find out how you can become the 2021 Apprentice of the Year, or view the success stories of previous recipients below.
