What do we do?

We design and deliver exceptional vocational training to the painting and plumbing industry in Western Australia and to other parts of Australia.

Life-long Learning

MPA Skills is in the business of learning. Life-long learning. We provide an extensive and ever developing range of innovative training programs for the industry. These are presented in state of the art facilities and on-the-job training.

MPA Skills provides everything from pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs; to license and registration courses; post trade training programs. Whatever career stage you are in, we can provide the training and resources to make the most of your working life.

In 2009 MPA Skills introduced a new workplace assessment program entitled "Recognising Workplace Competence" in which we are working towards a workplace training culture for apprenticeship training in Western Australia. Our aim is to systematically evolve the training culture to a more work-based mode. MPA Skills has identified a delivery mode which is structured to accommodate on-the-job assessment and/or validation of competency in the workplace.

In 2010 MPA Skills made a commitment to deliver workplace assessment for all apprentice training as well as introducing Skills Tracker to apprenticeship training. MPA Skills is the first training provider to introduce Skills Tracker to the plumbing and painting industries. Skills Tracker is an online system for continuously tracking and evaluating off-the-job and on-the-job experience.
