TAFE Western recently celebrated the launch of its Wireless Network.
TAFE Western has commissioned wireless network access at all of its colleges which will play an important role in education and training in the future.
Ms Kate Baxter, TAFE Western Institute Director officially launched the wireless network.
Ms Baxter said the wireless network will provide TAFE Western students with an easier way to get access to the information resources available on the internet wherever they are on a TAFE Western college.
"The network will also give TAFE Western new opportunities for teaching with access no longer limited to our computer labs," she said.
"Teachers can use online material, video and other resources on our network in every building including trade workshops. They can also gain access outdoors in paddocks and common areas."
In addition to the wireless network TAFE Western has also been developing more online training courses in: in project management, financial services, information technology, electrical and mechanical engineering, retail, tertiary preparation, children's services and welfare.
"We have a goal to have 20 course areas previously not online, delivered using new technology which allows the participation of geographically dispersed students," Ms Baxter said.
