​Home to Agricultural Mechanisation Centre 

Muresk Institute is set to become home to a new Specialist Centre for Agricultural Mechanisation to train farm machinery technicians in new and emerging technologies. 

WA is Australia’s largest grain-growing region and, as the rate of technology adoption escalates, the demand for agricultural machinery apprentices is expected to grow significantly.

The farm mechanisation sector is critical to good crop yields and profitability and a centralised specialist training centre was identified by industry as key to its success.

The new centre, coupled with industry partnerships and affordable and free training options for the agricultural sector, will help ensure a pipeline of skilled workers.
