2019 has begun with a wealth of opportunities on offer for people from the region of Mackay wanting to enter into an apprenticeship. 

Due to the confidence revival the resource section has experienced, many major mining companies have doubled their apprenticeship intake for 2019 with Mackay in particular experiencing the positive effects of this inside mining, automotive and other industries. Motor Trades apprenticeship opportunities currently on offer in Mackay include diesel fitters and light vehicle mechanics.

Despite the uptake in apprenticeships, even this couldn’t satisfy the number of applications received with many enthusiastic people desperate to land a role.

It’s believed that the boom in apprenticeship roles and the hundreds of applications being filled is caused by the growing confidence that people have working in a trade and the importance of getting an apprenticeship.

MTA Institute is the leading private provider of automotive training and apprenticeships in the state offering regional training throughout Queensland with several trainers based in Mackay.

For those wishing to enter in the automotive industry that are struggling to secure an apprenticeship, MTA Institute offers pre-apprenticeship courses designed to give students a comprehensive set of skills as a basic introduction to the automotive industry. These courses are held sporadically throughout the year at MTA Institute’s head office in Eight Mile Plains, SEQ and is a fantastic avenue to enter into the trade and to secure gainful employment.
