HYDERABAD: The Service Trades College, Australia, which provides training for construction industry workers, is exploring opportunities to partner with the Indian industry and training institute for its services.

A delegation of the college visited Hyderabad today and held a meeting with trade body, the AP Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

Brad O’ Carroll, chairman, said the institute provided training and courses for commercial plumbing sector, mechanical services (air conditioning) sector and fire protection industry. “In India, we are talking to training institutes as well as corporate houses in the construction sector for possible partnership,” he told media persons on the sidelines of the Fappci meeting.

The college is working on courses that will be suitable to the Indian market. “For instance, our comprehensive plumbing course runs for four and half years, while that in India is typically a 90-day one. Our courses for India will be designed to bridge the two,” he said.

The college is eyeing global business development opportunities – particularly in China, India and the US. “We want to reach out to these countries so that we can showcase our world-class training. We will offer scholarships and exchange programs so that trades people can come to Queensland to learn in our centre,” he added.

Sudeep Nambiar, Director, Business Development, Australia Trade & Investment Office, Govt. Of Queensland, said India was one of the top five trading partners for Queensland. Two-way trade between India and Queensland reached $ 5.3 billion dollars in 2012-13 and had the potential for further growth.

The meeting identified the areas of mining, food, infrastructure, healthcare & hospitality, gas, tourism, renewable energy, manufacturing, aviation and bio-technology as potential sectors for increasing bi-lateral partnerships.
