Education and Training Program

Future Energy Exports (FEnEx) CRC’s education and training program will deliver a highly skilled workforce with the capabilities needed to transition to a lower carbon energy system.

It is imperative that both vocational and tertiary-level skill sets relevant to the energy export industry are updated in-line with advances in digital and process technologies to enable tomorrow’s workforce to compete globally while transitioning towards a low carbon future.

By working through and growing educational partnerships between the Universities and with selected TAFE colleges, the FEnEx CRC education and training programs will focus on developing industry-ready researchers, engineers and operators.

Additionally, professional development opportunities, particularly in the areas of digital technology, will be developed to support SMEs and start-ups and facilitate career progression within larger companies.

The education and training program will focus on three areas:
