A GOLD detecting seminar and a beginners photography course will be just two of a wide range of courses offered by Upskill Training Centres Australia, a training hub with a difference that opened in Mandurah this week.

It is the first of its kind in Mandurah and was officially opened by Mayor Rhys Williams.

The owner and brainchild behind Upskill, Brett Young, has worked in the construction and mining industries for more than 30 years and aims to make training accessible to the wider community.

The hub will provide training in traditional construction and mining qualifications such as High-Risk, Non-High Risk tickets as well as First Aid and a range of other courses.

The Beginners Photography Course will be hosted by local photographer Daniel Wilkins.

Mr. Young opened the business with partner Carolyn Douglas-Luyben who, like Mr. Young has decades of practical experience in the construction and mining industries

Mr Young said Upskill Training was committed to upskilling employed and unemployed persons in Mandurah.

Course enrolments can be made at the Upskill Australia Training Centre at 101, Pinjarra Road.
