Holmesglen Futuretech increases training opportunities with campus expansion
Holmesglen Futuretech has strengthened its position as a leader in electrical and renewable energy training with the opening of new learning spaces recently.
The facilities will allow the North Melbourne campus to train more apprentices and professionals who are looking to upskill or reskill, and cater to future industry growth.
“Futuretech is a terrific expression of industry and TAFE partnership,” says Andrew Williamson, Executive Director – International Education and Enterprise Solutions.
The award-winning partnership with the Electrical Trades Union also offers the new 22515VIC Course in Working Safely in the Solar Industry as part of the Government’s Solar Homes program.
Future Energy Skills Executive Officer Alex Newman outlined how the Solar Homes program will support the installation of 700,000 solar PV (photovoltaic) systems, and 10,000 solar battery systems across Victoria over 10 years.
“It’s through modern facilities [such as this] that our apprentices can better prepare for prosperous careers and for the existing workforce to prepare for emerging technology in renewable energy,” Mr Newman said in his speech.
