27 Oct NEW STUDENT CAR PROJECT GIVEN THE GREEN LIGHT AT CHISHOLM TAFE
Chisholm TAFE has again teamed up with ACM Parts to run another exciting student-led car project as part of the organisations’ joint focus on delivering high-quality automotive training.
Excited automotive apprentices gathered at the Dandenong campus to take delivery of the black Holden Commodore SSV, which ACM Parts had donated to the cause along with automotive parts to be used for student training.
ACM Parts CEO Mike Kirkman said he was looking forward to the next chapter of the education alliance, which launched last year to great success.
“Our first project with Chisholm was a huge hit with the apprentices,” Mr Kirkman said.
“Students were encouraged to take charge of their own education and it was fantastic to see them get excited about putting the outstanding automotive training they receive at Chisholm into action and take their learning to the next level.
“Investing in these students is the way forward and we are excited to continue working with and supporting Chisholm to create a bright future for the automotive industry.”
Chisholm’s Senior Educator for the Automotive Technology – Supply Chain Management, Damien Bitzios said while the direction of this car project had not been confirmed, there were plenty of exciting options under consideration.
“The learning possibilities for this project are endless,” Mr Bitzios said.
“Drift, drag, race car or something else entirely – we have a number of options on the table we can’t wait to get started and see where this project will take us.
“We’re thrilled to be working once more with ACM Parts and thank them for their generous donations.”
Chisholm TAFE apprentices last year repaired and restored an ACM Parts-donated Toyota Corolla to full working condition.
