Abo­rig­i­nal peo­ple liv­ing in re­mote com­mu­ni­ties Aus­trali­aw­ide now have im­proved op­por­tu­ni­ties thanks to Hori­zon Power.

The Na­tional Cer­tifi­cate III Re­mote Com­mu­nity Util­i­ties Worker trade cer­ti­fi­ca­tion has of­fi­cially been recog­nised at State level following its na­tional reg­is­tra­tion.

The qual­i­fi­ca­tion evolved from Hori­zon Power’s Abo­rig­i­nal Com­mu­ni­ties Train­ing Pro­gram and was cre­ated to pro­vide jobs in com­mu­ni­ties where new power in­fra­struc­ture was be­ing cre­ated, and al­low them to be self suf­fi­cient.

RCUW ap­pren­tice Clin­ton Sa­hanna was pleased he and other ap­pren­tices were be­ing recog­nised for the time and ef­fort they were putting in with a nationally recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

“It ben­e­fits in­dige­nous peo­ple who live in their com­mu­nity to have a sense of pride and achieve­ment,” he said.
