MTA WA Training Awards Finalists Announced

The finalists in the inaugural Motor Trade Association of WA (MTA WA) Training Awards have been announced.

Competition across the three categories of Apprentice of the Year, Pre-Apprentice of the Year and Employer of the year was very strong, with 11 finalists selected across all categories.

Stephen Moir, MTA WA CEO said, “It’s been great to see such strong enthusiasm from the automotive industry to recognise achievements in training. There are some remarkable individuals and businesses amongst the finalists which are a real inspiration.”

Competition across the categories was robust with the judging panel noting the high calibre of nominations.

“I’ve no doubt that in this group of finalists we’re seeing potential leaders in the automotive industry,” Mr Moir said. “Their dedication to their trade and passion for the industry shows me that the future of the WA industry is in safe hands.”

“It’s also heartening to see employers who are committed to training and place it at the centre of their business practice,” Mr Moir said. “The finalists in the Employer of the Year category demonstrate the significant positive impact that training can have for a business and should be an inspiration to any business owner who is considering taking on an apprentice.”
