Students at TAFE Queensland SkillsTech will be given the power to predict the future thanks to a new partnership with leading industry software group, Dingo.
The Queensland based asset health software company will provide students at TAFE Queensland SkillsTech access to cutting edge predicative maintenance technology as part of their learning experience.
The software will allow students to monitor, analyse and conduct repairs on automotive assets within an interactive and live classroom environment.
General Manager of TAFE Queensland SkillsTech Mary Campbell said the introduction of Dingo software in the classroom will give students a massive advantage.
"The software will be introduced into the curriculum of our Heavy Vehicle apprentice students in 2017 with plans for further inclusion among other apprenticeship and higher education programs," Mrs Campbell said.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for our students and will give them real industry experience using some of the most advanced software available.
"The software will provide students with experience in condition monitoring and allow them to work towards a more informed future as a technician."
CEO of Dingo, Paul Higgins said equipping the next generation of skilled technicians with the tools and expertise they need in the fast changing world of big data and predictive analytics is core to the mission of both Dingo and TAFE Queensland.
With Dingo software fast becoming an industry leader in the predictive maintenance field, this partnership not only allows TAFE Queensland to deliver the latest developments in technology but provides its students with a competitive edge within a demanding industry.
