Composites Technician Apprentice

The training is conducted in a purpose-built factory environment by staff with an extensive industry
background delivering the theoretical elements of the trade backed by hands on practical experience.

If the apprentice already has some skills in the industry, the PARTEC Institute can assess these, so that apprenticeship time is reduced.

PARTEC can assist employers with trade recognition applications, or requests to the State Government to vary the required tradesman to apprentice ratio because this is a new trade.
