Oil and gas apprentices get to work

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of WA’s Energy Apprenticeships Group has kicked off with 16 process operator apprentices to begin their four-year training today.

In partnership with industry leaders Quadrant Energy, Woodside Petroleum, Shell and Vermilion Energy, EAG will facilitate a new standardised education and training program to increase the supply of safe, skilled workers in the oil and gas sector.

The training will comprise two years based in Perth at the Challenger Institute of Technology’s Australian centre for Energy and Process Training, followed by two years of real-world experience as fly-in, fly-out operators at various onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities in Australia.
