Orange, Australia now the site of brand new training facilities for mining, trades, sustainable building

TAFE Western has opened three new facilities in Orange, NSW, Australia to provide students with state of the art training in trades and mining, set in a framework of green technology and green building practices.

TAFE Western institute director Kate Baxter said both the Green Skills Trade Education Centre and the mining simulator would provide world-class learning facilities right here in Orange. She said the Green Skills Trade Education Centre would train tradespeople in a range of areas including plumbing, construction, electrotechnology, manufacturing and engineering, and aimed to develop sustainable building practices. Senator Hutchins said the facility showed the commitment of federal and state governments to providing training to the tradespeople of tomorrow, and to sustainability.
