Kangan Institute is always seeking to maximise education opportunities for our current and future students. Therefore we are very excited to announce a new partnership with Viva Energy to bolster industry ties and be at the vanguard of automotive and training technology.
As one of Australia’s leading energy companies in Australia and through its licensee arrangement with Shell, Viva Energy has the benefit of more than 100 years of technical experience and expertise in delivering market-leading Shell branded lubricants to consumers.
The benefits of this partnership are obvious.
For Viva Energy, it’s access to Kangan Institute’s industry leading facilities at the Automotive Centre of Excellence, including our state of the art fuel testing and measurement capabilities, emissions laboratory and testing facilities, dynamometers for everything from trucks to motorcycles, plus our many industry rooms and workshops.
For Kangan Institute, it’s an unequalled opportunity to gain access to Viva Energy’s Technical Experts and their willingness to present and share their knowledge to apprentices across the huge array of areas that Viva Energy specialise in, covering everything from automotive lubrication trends to far-reaching technological developments.
The “Shell Rimula Apprentice of the Year” program, time with the Shell V8 Supercars Team, and access to Shell Global Expert forums will also be available to our students.
We will also be looking at combining our industry nous to develop joint initiatives including oil and fuel testing using our aforementioned facilities.
The opportunities for our students will be fuelled even further.
To start this partnership, we are planning an exciting launch event:
Where: Kangan Institute Automotive Centre of Excellence; 1 Batman’s Hill Drive, Docklands
When: October 10; 3pm – 5pm
We’ll be hosting a tour of ACE, a Shell guest speaker and a break out session with Shell global expert with an additional in-depth presentation.
