Training scholarship to boost nbn jobs

The State Government, in partnership with nbn, has launched a new scholarship scheme to encourage and assist Western Australians to take opportunity of hundreds of jobs attached to the rollout of the Commonwealth Government’s national broadband network. Both experienced telecommunications workers and new industry entrants are needed to fill the high skill shortage occupations, so whether you’re returning to the field or just getting started, this program may have opportunities for you.

As part of a team that installs, monitors and replaces lines, you will learn the tools of the trade from industry experts and may become a skilled telecommunications professional. While you’re working you’ll gain nationally recognised training in units of competency or a full qualification.

To find out more, visit the nbn website and find out how this program might suit you.
