SCIRT, Civil Contractors New Zealand and Connexis drove the creation of an industry-wide Training Advisory Group.

In early 2013, SCIRT's Training Team established a SCIRT-wide Training Forum Group.

It was made up of a wide range of skilled operational leaders, who, as Mason Tolerton, SCIRT's training and peak performance manager, described, knew "what good looks like, in both infrastructure work and how to train a crew to do it".
