Here at HERA we have two focuses to our education offerings. Delivering it to our existing workforce, and advocating it as a career pathway to our youth.
We know the metals industry is constantly in need of evolving if we’re to meet the pressures of changing consumer demand and their need for world-class products and services. And, a growing gap in skills shortage is not making this task an easy one to fulfill. That’s why, a core part of what we do is making sure our workforce has access to education programs, workshops, seminars and training that improve their knowledge base and keep them skilled for the future.
We carry out a number of full day courses that are tailored to metals engineering. Allowing attendees to improve their technical expertise, keep ahead of the latest industry developments and best practice – and open the door to career opportunities and advancement.
To support this, we partner with associated industry and organisations both nationally and abroad to bring up to date industry learnings and research to our attendees. Most of our courses contribute to Continuous Professional Development (CPD), attendance certification, NZQA and international standard qualifications. As a result, allowing our industry to deliver high level skills to a global market.
Education is the heart of our future
Behind the scenes we work closely with institutes and foundations to ensure our youth see heavy metals engineering as a viable and rewarding career path to pursue. Providing access to internships to students from across the world and scholarships under our HERA Foundation.
