Recog­ni­tion for train­ing pro­gram

Canning Times - - NEWS -

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.

The Na­tional En­ergy Tech­ni­cian Train­ing Scheme in Welshpool is up for a state award.
