Ca­reers mo­tor along

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

THE automotive in­dus­try em­ploys 70,000 peo­ple and con­trib­utes $2.7 bil­lion per year to the econ­omy, and one Bel­mont ca­reer provider wants to help train the next gen­er­a­tion of automotive ex­perts.

Kia Mo­tors has do­nated two cars to Ca­reer Aus­tralia’s Bel­mont cam­pus to help stu­dents gain hand­son ex­pe­ri­ence with the latest in car tech­nol­ogy.

The do­na­tion is part of a part­ner­ship agree­ment be­tween Kia Mo­tors and Ca­reers Aus­tralia, signed in 2014, that will see Ca­reers Aus­tralia’s na­tional automotive cen­tres take de­liv­ery of cars pro­gres­sively as tech­nol­ogy is in­tro­duced.

Ac­cord­ing to Ca­reers Aus­tralia’s automotive trainer Stephen Jones, the prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence will help fuel new skills re­quired to ser­vice the ever-grow­ing num­ber of ve­hi­cles in Aus­tralia.

“Na­tion­ally, Ca­reers Aus­tralia’s automotive train­ing cen­tres are re­port­ing sig­nif­i­cant in­ter­est as new en­trants and ex- ist­ing work­ers look to de­velop spe­cial­ist skills to meet the grow­ing de­mands of the in­dus­try,” he said.

Any­one in­ter­ested in en­rolling should con­tact 9262 9500.
