WOODSIDE and the Pilbara Institute have unveiled a joint investment project for mechanical engineering and apprenticeship training.
The Mechanical Apprentice Project will focus on providing new mechanical teaching and specialist metal skills equipment to the Institutes’ Karratha campus.
Woodside’s Pluto LNG Project and the Woodside-operated North West Shelf Project provided funding for the project.
Pilbara Institute managing director Lyn Farrell said the investment would benefit all apprentices using the Institute for training purposes.
“It’s critical in a boom time to secure quality investment in training future industry workers and this project gives our goals a real boost,” she said.
