2020 WA Training Awards

UPDATE FROM DTWD

The measures we have all adopted in response to COVID-19 and the rapidly evolving situation have unfortunately led to the Department’s decision to cancel the 2020 WA Training Awards program. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.

We understand that an abbreviated form of the program that could be undertaken at national level is under consideration and we will keep you posted on any new developments. In the meantime, the Australian Award direct-entry categories are still open and can be entered by visiting the Australian Training Awards website.

While we realise this will be disappointing for those who were applying, this decision aligns with the State Government position at this time.

The Department of Training and Workforce Development places the highest priority on the safety and health of our students, training providers and extended communities.

At times like this, the importance of a skilled workforce becomes very clear, both now to support Western Australians during this crisis and later as part of the recovery process as we emerge from the impacts of COVID-19. As we work to manage this, we look forward to a time when we can begin to rebuild our communities together.

Should you require further information please contact the Training Awards team at WATrainingAwards@dtwd.wa.gov.au

Thank you again for your support of the WA Training Awards and we look forward to your continued involvement in 2021

ANNE DRISCOLL – DIRECTOR GENERAL

Certificate III in Appliance Servicing (UEE 32111) Apprenticeship in Western Australia

The UEEA Training Council, Appliance Servicing Industry and Energy Skills Solutions are happy to announce the commencement of the UEE 32111 Certificate III in Appliance Servicing apprenticeship in Western Australia.

The Certificate III in Appliance Servicing was established as a Class A qualification in 2010, however delivery is unavailable in Western Australia and apprentices are required to attend training in Queensland or New South Wales. This training is inflexible, cumbersome, time consuming and cost prohibitive.

Manufacturers were using small teams of their own technicians and in some cases contracting out warranty work to the appliance service specialists. Not having the apprenticeship delivered in WA, has led to the appliance service industry having serious skill deficiencies, which in turn has had an adverse effect on product reputation.

Enormous efforts by all stake holders has gone into getting the training to this level, including the Department of Training and Workforce Development who have approved the funding for this apprenticeship.

Energy Skills Solutions will commence training for their first group of apprentices on Monday 2nd October 2017. Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) will also be available for existing employees.

For further information on the Certificate III in Appliance Servicing apprenticeship, please contact: Jonathan Andrews, Director, Energy Skills Solutions, PO Box 2857, MALAGA 6944.                    T: (08) 9209 3833,  M: 0421 717 287, E:  jonathan@energyskillssolutions.com.au
