A WELSHPOOL-based training scheme has been named among the organisation finalists in the WA Training awards, announced today.

The National Energy Technician Training Scheme (NETTS), in collaboration with Programmed Training Services, Quadrant Energy and Shell Vermillion, was named a finalist for the WA Industry Collaboration Award.

NETTS targets skills shortages by bringing together leading players in the oil and gas sector with peak training bodies.

Award winners will be announced in September and winners may also be eligible to compete in the Australian Training Awards later in the year.

Finalists were applauded for their investment in training by Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery.

“Creating training opportunities for Western Australians is key to ensuring we are well placed as the State’s economy grows and diversifies,” Ms Ellery said.

“The WA Training Awards encourage continuous improvement, innovation and excellence in a sector that is critical to building the State’s capacity.”
