The Institute for Drone Technology secures grant from the Victorian Government’s Workforce Training and Innovation Fund.
We are proud to be able to officially announce our success in securing a $1.2m grant from the Victorian Government‘s Workforce Training and Innovation Fund. The purpose of the grant is to create drone training products contextualised to key industry areas including asset management, facilities management, agriculture / environmental land management, and to increase the productivity of our employer partners by delivering this training to their staff.
Courses have been developed in collaboration with industry, employers and other key local stakeholders and will provide vital training across the plumbing, horticulture, disability support, government, agriculture and construction sectors.
The Labor Government is also delivering $1.2 million in funding for training in the industrial application of drone technology – qualifying students in the use of the technology and positioning them to take up jobs in cutting-edge fields and future industries.
