A state-of-the-art facility which offers specialised welding training has opened in Blacktown City.
Fabinox Welding Academy, a registered training organisation, is providing local ‘tradies’ the opportunity to upgrade their skills and qualifications during these difficult employment times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The newly-refurbished centre in Riverstone offers Certificate III training in Engineering Fabrication and Welding (MEM30319) and a range of other courses, including Forklift License.
Blacktown City Mayor Tony Bleasdale OAM, paid a visit recently to the new training facility; “It is wonderful that Fabinox is investing in jobs and the future of young people in Blacktown City.”
“At Blacktown City Council, we believe in the potential of our young people, and we believe they should have access to training and employment opportunities right here in our great City.
“The Marsden Park, Schofields, Riverstone area is going through massive residential and industrial development. The development is providing job opportunities and this facility can provide the training locally that’s needed for some of those jobs.” Mayor Bleasdale said.
Fabinox Welding Academy features 13 training bays, a 15-seater classroom, 2 virtual reality machines, and 1 real weld machine, and can cater for up to 50 students at one time across the difference courses.
