The South East Melbourne Manufacturers’ Alliance (SEMMA) received $200,000 of funding from the Federal government to launch an industry-led welding skills short course program, designed to provide a continuity of skills needed for the future of manufacturing.

This short course will equip participants to perform the work of “Class 2 Welders” – sufficient to meet over an estimated 70% of welding tasks required by manufacturers in the southeast.

In partnership with the Local Jobs Program (LJP). The LJP is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment.
