A specialist engineering training centre will be built at
South Metropolitan TAFE's Australian Centre for Energy and Process Training (ACEPT).
The centre will double ACEPT's annual training capacity and help meet the increased workforce training requirements for projects in Australia’s Liquefied Natural Gas industry (LNG).
Located in Henderson, south of Perth, the campus will offer an applied LNG learning environment incorporating hands-on practical experience at ACEPT’s closed loop processing plant.
Training of electrical and instrumentation control engineers and engineering technicians will increase, as highly skilled operators are needed to operate and maintain plants safely and efficiently.
ACEPT services train international students in process operations from entry level to advanced diploma. A growing number of electricians are also supported in completing advanced trade qualifications in instrumentation.
The new engineering centre will support the delivery of a wider range of qualifications focused on developing the high level technical skills required for the operation and maintenance of LNG plants, including advanced diplomas in mechanical, electrical and structural engineering. It will provide foundation skills for new entrants to the oil and gas industry, up-skill existing workers and deliver gap training for tradespeople, as well as target programs for under-represented groups.
