Implementation Progress

The Department of Trade, Business and Innovation will work with the gas industry, its contractors and with training and research bodies such as Charles Darwin University and the North Australian Centre for Oil and Gas to identify and address gaps in the availability of specialised training.

Appropriately skilled training providers will be encouraged to partner with specialist support industries (e.g. drilling companies) and communities to deliver the required skills training locally.

DTBI is in discussions with oil and gas companies, Universities and other training bodies to identify specific skills requirements and training opportunities.
