The Victorian Government is developing skills in energy efficiency

Sustainability Victoria have announced the successful recipients of an Andrews Labor Government’s $3.6 million Boosting Business Productivity Program.

Melbourne Polytechnic was one of the six recipients of the funding and will be the first Victorian education institute that sees the training of energy technicians for the future, with a new qualification for electricians in energy efficiency.

The new Certificate IV in Energy Management and Control aims to upskill graduates so they can provide more energy efficient outcomes to businesses.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio said: “By upskilling workers, we can open up the sector to create long-term sustainable jobs, increase the uptake of energy efficiency and drive innovation in new energy technologies.”

Approved projects will be completed in early 2019.
