Recognition for training program
A WELSHPOOL-based training scheme is among the finalists in the WA Training Awards.
The National Energy Technician Training Scheme (NETTS) – in collaboration with Programmed Training Services, Quadrant Energy and Shell Vermillion – is a finalist for the WA Industry Collaboration Award.
NETTS targets skills shortages by bringing together leading players in the oil and gas sector with peak training bodies.
Award winners will be announced in September and winners may also be eligible to compete in the Australian Training Awards later this year.
Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery said finalists should be applauded for their investment in training.
“Creating training opportunities for West Australians is key to ensuring we are well-placed as the state’s economy grows and diversifies,” she said.
“The WA Training Awards encourage continuous improvement, innovation and excellence in a sector that is critical to building the state’s capacity.”
Winners will be announced on September 28.
