A 12-week course designed to start school leavers in print machining careers is being offered by the Sydney Institute of TAFE.

The intensive short course begins on Monday 19 November with classes 9am-4pm Monday to Thursday.

Printing Industries national employee relations and OHS services manager, Ken Stenner, commended the Institute on the initiative saying the four days per week training would give students invaluable printing skills experience.

"Students will receive hands-on technical skills training from qualified professionals and should be able to operate a GTO by the end of the course," he said.

"The course will cover most first year printing apprenticeship topics and be recognised toward trade qualifications.

"I urge people with student, school or community organisation contacts to pass this information on to encourage young people into the course."

The course is government-subsidised and costs $164 (free to benefit card holders). Further information and course registration is available by contacting Steve Kyd at the Sydney Institute on (02) 9217 3450 e-mail:
