Viva Energy encourages future transport technicians

Viva Energy has announced a new partnership with Melbourne-based Technical and Further Education provider, the Kangan Institute.

The partnership will see Viva Energy offer Kangan apprentices unparalleled access to technical experts in automotive lubrication, development opportunities through formal training in the use of world-class products, access to Shell Global Expert forums and the Shell V-Power Supercars Team, and ongoing technical assistance through a Docklands-based team.

Through its licensee arrangement with Shell, Viva Energy has the benefit of more than 100 years of technical experience and expertise in delivering market-leading Shell branded lubricants to consumers.

The partnership will provide Viva Energy with access to Kangan Insitute’s industry leading facilities at the Automotive Centre of Excellence, including their world class heavy duty diesel dynamometer facility to test and prove lubricant solutions that deliver savings to customers in the real world.

The Institute will also introduce the  “Shell Rimula Apprentice of the Year” program as part of the partnership.

Viva Energy’s Chief Executive Officer, Scott Wyatt, said he was delighted to partner with the Kangan Institute to help train the next generation of Australian automotive and heavy-duty diesel technicians.

"It's great to support the institute through this partnership," Wyatt said.

"One thing that's important to Viva Energy is 'helping people reach their destination', whether that’s our customers, staff, and students at Kangan Institute.

“Shell is globally renown for its quality fuels and lubricant products, which results from the millions of dollars it continues to invest in research and development,” Wyatt said.

“Kangan apprentices will not only have the opportunity to use leading products, but will have direct access to industry experts who have vast experience with oil products.

“The advances in lubricant technology will only continue, and as the life blood of machines, it is imperative that today's students keep abreast of developments. We are confident that our partnership and support will add real value in the classroom and in workshops."
