"The development of Stage 2 of the ACEPT campus will include computer labs, mechatronics and metallurgy laboratories, workshops and machine rooms, as well as two oil and gas processing simulator rooms," she said.

 

"This is testament to the State Government's commitment to provide the latest facilities and technology which not only benefits students, but industry which takes on these graduates."

 

Ms Harvey said in a constantly evolving resources sector, it was essential that South Metropolitan TAFE remained at the forefront of industry requirements.

 

"This facility will help ensure ACEPT, TAFE and Western Australia preserve its coveted position as Australia's leader in training for the resources sector," she said.

 

"This project again highlights the Liberal National Government's commitment to ensure training equips students with the best skills to get a job in the industries driving our economy."
