Central Institute of Technology
The former Central Institute of Technology was one of Australia's largest training institutes. It trained more than 29,000 students annually, including 1,300 international students. Central offered around 400 nationally accredited training courses across a wide variety of training areas and was the primary deliverer of higher-level technical and professional qualifications within the state. Central's had five campuses which were located in the hub of Perth's cultural and business districts. In April 2016, the state government restructured the TAFE system, amalgamating the 11 TAFE colleges into 5 TAFE Colleges. As a result of the re-alignment Central Institute of Technology now falls under the umbrella of the North Metropolitan TAFE.
