“The partnership between WPC Group, Nissan and Sydney Institute has been established as a part of our national NISSMAP (Mentored Apprenticeship Program) to train Nissan’s future technicians and retain the skills developed within Nissan over a longer period. The state of the art AutoCEL at Ultimo provides them with the very best in learning environments and it’s great to see the class enjoying their experience here” said Daniel Cairns, WPC Group General Manager. “We also look forward to training future apprentices via a Nissan dedicated pre-apprenticeship program at this world class facility in the second half f 2013 “ he added.

Peter Denison, Head Teacher at Ultimo AutoCEL agreed, “It’s great to see WPC Group and Nissan supporting the development of apprentices. The standard of participants in the program is outstanding in my opinion and we look forward to the future of this industry leading program”
