4 Great Courses for the Future

These vocational courses skill students in useful jobs that will become increasingly in demand in the future. Not just in Australia, but all over the world.


Increasingly more occupations are becoming automated by machines. This has never been more common in the manufacturing industry. A great example is if you look at how cars were manufactured 100 years ago; everything was assembled by hand. However nowadays automated robots control 99% of the manufacturing process. The cost efficiency in using a robot compared to humans is huge.

Electro Instrumentation Technicians program/fix these machines/robots to ensure that they run smoothly.

Common examples of where an instrumentation technician would work include:

  • Mining sites
  • Power Plants
  • Manufacturing Industries

Because this is a relatively new occupation, there are very few tradesman skilled in this field. Consequently the demand for this occupation is huge. And the pay is excellent.

Please note that as Electronic Instrument Trades Worker (342315) – is currently on the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) . This means that upon completion of this 2 year trade occupation, students may be eligible to apply for the graduate work visa.
