Plastic Rotomoulding Apprentice

The training is conducted in a purpose-built factory environment by staff with an extensive industry background delivering the theoretical elements of the trade backed by hands on practical experience.

“Queensland Government Subsidy” means subsidy from the Department of Education and Training.

  • This trade Apprenticeship is new, approved by the State Government in February 2003.
  • It is a 3 year Apprenticeship, but experienced students can take a “fast-track” program.
  • PARTEC can assist employers with Trade Recognition applications, or requests to the State Government to vary the required tradesman to apprentice ratio because it is a new trade.
  • The cost of the Apprenticeship training by PARTEC is subsidised by the State Government through the User Choice Program. There is an annual tuition fee which the State Government requires to be paid to PARTEC for the balance of the cost. This is between $350 and $450 per year at current rates. Method of payment is negotiable.
  • The employer of a Rotational Moulding Apprentice may receive a generous Commonwealth Government incentive of $3,000 on completion by the apprentice.
