The National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA) Training and Apprenticeships Centre of Excellence in Chullora will be used to train first-year electrical apprentices.

The centre is expected to grow each year to include 500 apprentices and post-trade learners. Over the next five years, 7000 apprentices and tradespeople will receive electrotechnology training at the centre.

Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said the specialist facility will be equipped with the latest electrotechnology materials and tools.

“The Centre of Excellence is well-positioned to become one of the best of its kind in Australia”, Mr Lee said.

NSW’s infrastructure boom is just one factor that has contributed to a shortage of electricians, which the centre will help to address.
