Endress+Hauser support education and training

A proactive initiative by Endress+Hauser to alleviate the shortage of skilled instrument technicians in the manufacturing industry has been recognised by the RMIT School of Electrotechnology in Melbourne.

John Immelman, Endress+Hauser managing director, was recently presented with a certificate of recognition by the School of Electrotechnology in appreciation of Endress+Hauser’s significant contributions in instrumentation, documentation for training materials, service and repairs, and technical instruction.

The School of Electrotechnology said Endress+Hauser’s material and non-material contributions over the last two years had benefited the School enormously, particularly the students in their practical training.

The RMIT in Melbourne is the only Australian institution offering a five-year apprenticeship course with dual trade qualifications in electrical and instrumentation.

As all Australia’s key industry verticals rely on process control instrumentation and control systems to manufacture or process their products, industry has recognised that using electricians without instrument training to maintain and repair sophisticated process controls is not cost effective.

Endress+Hauser’s, as part of its commitment to education and social development, is pleased to be associated with RMIT.
