- McGowan Government continues to support training and employment for Western Australians in the energy industry
- Thirty apprentices attain nationally recognised Certificate III level qualifications in 2022
The energy industry continues to provide training and employment for Western Australians, with 30 apprentices graduating from Western Power’s apprenticeship program today, all securing employment with the utility in 2023.
As part of their four-year apprenticeship, the graduates gained valuable and necessary on-the-job vocational experience, skills and knowledge to be part of WA’s energy future.
The Western Power national accredited program teaches specialised skills and expertise across four streams: electrical, overhead linework, cable jointing, and heavy mechanical.
Training of apprentices requires partnership between the apprentice, depot teams and the registered training organisations to deliver certification training.
Western Power is currently recruiting for its 2023 intake of apprentices and trainees. Successful candidates will be notified in December 2022 and start their skills development pathway in January 2023.
