Cairns Airport TourSupporting local Cairns Students

Cairns Airport graciously opened their doors for the 1st and 2nd Year TAFE Queensland Cairns apprentices to tour the Chiller Plant on site in August. Out of the 23 students in attendance, many had never been exposed to a Chiller, let alone a substantial plantroom on a major site.

The VAE site team provided a run down on the purpose of the plant at the Cairns Airport site during the two hour tour, where many thoughtful questions were asked by the inquisitive students.

The out of classroom teaching opportunity highlighted to many of the apprentices what a HVAC trade has to offer. The tour was a brilliant platform to showcase what VAE can provide to new entrants to our industry, and the employment opportunities available to students.

A massive thank you to Cairns Airport for making this possible.
