Fujitsu General (Aust.) Pty Limited has partnered with RMIT University
on a learning initiative to equip students with greater support and resources.
Fujitsu General will provide RMIT with 26 air conditioning systems to
help apprentices with the practical elements of their studies. These systems
will include wall mounted air conditioners featuring the new R32 refrigerant as
well as R410A systems.
In addition to equipment support, the local Fujitsu General personnel
will share their knowledge and insights about the industry as well as technology
with the students. With this learning initiative, Fujitsu General aims to build
relationships with the next generation of electrical and mechanical contractors
while also opening up avenues for the students to acquire potential work
experience and future employment.
Commenting on the new collaboration with Fujitsu General, Justin
Kidgell, deputy head of school - trades, RMIT School of Vocational Engineering
said that it was important to gain maximum practical experience and insight
into the trade of choice before completing tuition. The initiative will enable graduates
to transition into the workforce more smoothly, placing them at a greater
advantage than those lacking adequate training and work experience.
David Foley, state manager - Victoria and
Tasmania, Fujitsu General adds that students will have access to the latest
resources as well as greater support from local, highly experienced Fujitsu
General team members.
