YOUNG In­dige­nous West Aus­tralians now have the chance to learn more about our most pre­cious re­source.

Four young stu­dents from Clon­tarf Academy and Sevenoaks Se­nior Col­lege will be the first to be­gin a two-year trainee­ship at the Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion de­pot in Kelmscott to ob­tain a cer­tifi­cate II qual­i­fi­ca­tion in wa­ter oper­a­tions.

Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion chief ex­ec­u­tive Sue Mur­phy said the stu­dents would carry out on­site work at the Kelmscott de­pot un­der the guid­ance of a Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion su­per­vi­sor, as well as struc­tured train­ing through Chal­lenger In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy.

Af­ter the pi­lot pro­gram, she said they would con­sider ex­tend­ing it to other lo­ca­tions.
