Swagelok shares knowledge to support Queensland’s hydrogen future

Swagelok Australia and New Zealand have provided TAFE Queensland teachers with training to support Queensland's hydrogen future.

World leaders in industrial fluid system manufacturing and support, Swagelok Australia and New Zealand, have supported Queensland’s largest and most experienced training provider to unlock the state’s hydrogen future, having run intensive training with TAFE Queensland teachers from across the state.

Teachers from the plumbing, electrical, instrumentation, and oil and gas industries from North Queensland and Greater Brisbane completed training with Swagelok representatives at TAFE Queensland’s Eagle Farm campus to ensure students continue to be trained in the latest industry trends relevant to their study areas.

TAFE Queensland Emerging Industries Business Manager Shawn O’Sullivan said a key component to TAFE Queensland’s hydrogen training strategy was the dispersal of teachers and skills in the sector across the state, and that equipping teachers from North Queensland with these skills is a prime example of this strategy at play.

“TAFE Queensland is well-placed to skill Queenslanders in hydrogen work that will become more common in coming years, and our strategy has a state-wide focus that means students from Cairns through to Coolangatta will have access to the training they need,” Mr O’Sullivan said.

“We work with a range of industry leaders to develop our training and make sure it is suiting industry needs for now and into the future, and this training through Swagelok is a great example of that.”

“Campuses at Eagle Farm and in Townsville will lead the state in hydrogen industry training, and it is critical to our strategy to then extend that knowledge to our other campuses across Queensland,” he said.

A range of hydrogen training is already available at TAFE Queensland, with Micro-credentials covering hydrogen safety for workers involved in the supply, transport, and usage of hydrogen in various applications.
