New TAFE Tasmania course allows graduates to control multi-billion-dollar power stations

Posted by waterweek on 5 October 2007

Designed in a partnership between Hydro Tasmania and TAFE, the Electricity Supply Industry Generation Training Package (GenTech) gives trainees hands-on experience managing massive water and power flows, reported The Mercury, (25/9/2007, p.18).

Just right for Tassie: TAFE’s Training Coordinator, John Karagiannakis, said there were seven people enrolled for the power station operator course. “It’s a course specific to Hydro Tasmania’s requirements, catering exactly for their needs,” Karagiannakis said. “So the guys really need to know what they’re doing.” Hydro Tasmania’s Chief Executive Officer, Vince Hawksworth, said his company had previously relied on an internally developed training program for power station operators, delivered by its own staff.
