The Quanta Advanced Training Center at the Lazy Q Ranch in La Grange, Texas, is a unique 2,300 acre ranch that has been transformed into fully equipped line worker training college. In collaboration with Australian Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), this world class training facility is now available for Australian line worker training for building much needed local capability and skills.

Lazy Q offers the highest level of training by constantly innovating with the latest research and technology.

Our people are at the core of Quanta’s success. We are fully committed to providing the resources it takes to ensure their safety and invest in our employees’ future.
