The Hunter Valley Training Company (HVTC) is opening a new $5 million Skills Centre at Rutherford.
Officially opening later this week, HVTC CEO Sharon Smith explained that the “new state-of-the-art Skills Centre will be the training ground for more than 50 apprentices in 2014, who will gain skills in a range of traditional trades highly sought after in mining and manufacturing”.
“With custom built facilities, we’ll be better able to meet the changing nature of training and provide.”
Smith went on to add “we’ll also be broadening our range of training to include specifically designed induction courses, safety training, and additional short courses for Australian industry”.
HVTC is opening the new facility as it has outgrown its current site.
