Stramit supports apprenticeship training programs

21 May 2019

Stramit is looking forward to yet another round of graduates later this year, thanks to its ten-year partnership with Albury TAFE.

The initiative has seen over 100 apprentices apply their new-found skills after graduating the Certificate III in Roof Plumbing (CPC32612) course, while another 25 apprentices are now completing their training, expecting 18 apprentices to complete the course by the end of 2019.   

TAFE NSW Albury plumbing teacher Bruce Lennon said in-kind support from organisations like Stramit helped maintain their supply of training materials and create real-life learning opportunities.

“Stramit has been supplying us with a range of roofing and rainwater products, drawings and associated literature for years,” he said.

“Having those materials on hand means our students get to work with real products and apply what they’re learning in a classroom setting.

“It also means they get exposure to a range of steel building products they might not get to work with in their every-day jobs.”

Stramit’s Albury Branch Manager, Brad Sloan, said his team was proud of their long-standing support of the program.

“It’s important that we play our part in supporting the next generation of roofers and plumbers – they’re so critical to the success of our industry in the future.

“We also sponsor the Roof Plumbing Apprentice of the Year Award and other initiatives, because developing industry capability is a topic that’s really close to our heart,” he said.
