Global leader in portable electronic test and measurement technology, Fluke Australia
is offering support to Australian students through the Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE (NMIT) 2012 Study Grants Program.
The NMIT rewards students who demonstrate enthusiasm and commitment to their studies as well as academic or skills excellence with grants and tours designed to assist them with their study, all provided by members of the NMIT Industry Foundation.
The NMIT Industry Foundation formally recognises partnerships with industry organisations and businesses such as Fluke Australia, providing a means for industry to be actively involved with the professional development of students while enabling NMIT to identify and meet industry expectations of the vocational education and training sector.
Fluke Australia’s contribution gives the recipients the opportunity to purchase equipment and resources to enhance their learning. Recipients of the Fluke Australia 2012 Study Grant include Andrew Johns, who is studying an Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology, and Jason Adams who is studying a Diploma of ESI Power Systems.
Henk van Velze, Managing Director, Fluke Australia explains that the company continues to look for opportunities to support the education of future trade professionals. Fluke’s Education Partnership Portal, for instance is a free online portal developed for educators, combining educational materials and application information. The portal is an example of Fluke’s commitment to providing support to ensure trade professionals have the right tools and training when they enter the workforce.
The portal also offers discounts on Fluke electronic test tools for educational institutions to equip their labs with the latest technology.
