"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."

"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.
