Mastering the skills required

$1.2 million project will provide
cutting edge training in RV industry

Have your say

VICTORIA'S caravan Industry will soon have access to new cutting edge training thanks to a new project funded under the state government's Workplace Training Innovation Fund.

The welcome $1.2 million project, which will deliver the Certificate III in Recreational Vehicle Manufacture for the first time at scale, on-site and with collaboration between industry and the training provider, was announced by local MP Bronwyn Halfpenny.

"More than 90 percent of all recreational vehicles and caravans in Australia are made right here in Victoria in what we call the Education State," she said.

"The government is proud to be investing this innovative project that will play a key role in helping our state's next generation of workers develop the skills they need to secure real jobs and build successful careers."

The Caravan Industry Manufacturing Excellence project is being led by Caravan Trades and Industries Association of Victoria in partnership with Melbourne Polytechnic and Nova Caravans.

They will work together on-site at the caravan manufacturer's factory to build an industry-first end-to-end manufacturing line training model.

Training materials will be developed as well as targeted student support to help them master the skills they need for each stage of the manufacturing line.

The key lessons from the project will then be used to establish a proposed new National Caravan Industry Centre of Excellence at Melbourne Polytechnic.

The Workplace Training Innovation Fund is ensuring students receive high quality training that delivers workforce skills employers need.

The fund is supporting Victorian TAFEs and training providers to work in partnership with industry to develop innovative new training programs, products and projects that harness the very latest technologies and approaches.
