WA Priority Industry Training

This program focuses on making available a range of qualifications that address priority industry needs of the State through a non-employment-based training pathway.

Please note: Priority Industry Training is only available for students who attend classes. We currently have a waitlist for students who would like to enrol and attend class for an upcoming start date. Contact ACCCO if you wish to go on the waitlist. 

What is the Priority Industry Training?

Priority Industry Training is a program under Jobs and Skills WA.
This program has two target groups: jobseekers and existing workers. The qualifications offered may be delivered in any region throughout WA for both target groups.

Jobs and Skills WA
As Western Australia’s economy grows and diversifies, the outlook for jobs is constantly changing. Jobs and Skills WA is the way the State Government, through the Department, prioritises its investment in training to focus on courses that equip people to take up jobs that are, or will be, in high demand. Priorities include apprenticeships, eligible traineeships and priority industry qualifications.
