TAFE NSW's long-awaited, state-of-the-art new Transport Technology hub was officially opened on Monday 12 September at Wetherill Park.

The Centre has been built in conjunction with industry companies who are also potential employers of TAFE graduates. Covering a 4000sq metre area, the new facility also boasts some innovative technological features such as moveable power points, tool boxes that record which items have been removed from them and in-floor exhaust extractors.

Wide-screen TVs have been mounted across the main training area for students to display information from their classes, something that means lugging around heavy textbooks is a thing of the past.

"It will make things easier and we will be able to learn more efficiently," Jade Gill, a third year heavy vehicle apprentice told the Fairfield Advance.

Now that the Transport Technology Centre has been launched, TAFE NSW is working on its next big learning hub – an engineering facility of a similar scale.
