Trailblazing graduates power through Australian-first program

The first participants have graduated from an Australian-first training program to grow the country’s own transmission line construction workforce to build the critical infrastructure to enable the clean energy transition.

Sixteen participants from the Legacy 100 program have completed their training on EnergyConnect – Australia’s largest transmission project – and gained valuable qualifications, knowledge and experience in building high-voltage electricity towers and lines.

Another 33 participants are currently at various stages of their training under the Legacy 100 program which allows participants to earn while they learn and gain a Certificate II in Transmission Line Construction.

Transgrid and its EnergyConnect construction partner Elecnor Australia launched Legacy 100 last year as the nation’s first training initiative to boost skills in the power transmission sector across regional NSW.
