Opportunities power on with trade certification
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.
