Australian Wool Companies Trust Form Training Center

Wool research and development company Australian Wool Innovation Ltd.'s the International Fibre Centre — a textile processing and manufacturing education and training company — and the Australian Wool Education Trust — a fund provider for undergraduate and/or post-graduate training in wool and wool science and technology — have founded the Australian Wool Textile Training Centre. The center, which will be housed within the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation in Geelong, Victoria, will offer courses designed for international wool industry professionals who want to increase their knowledge and skills, especially in the use of Austrialian wool.

The center will offer its first series of courses from Sept. 18 to Oct. 3, 2006. The courses will focus on all sectors of the wool textile industry — from growers, brokers, buyers and service providers to processors, textile manufacturers, designers, retailers and merchandisers. Participants may earn a certificate upon completion of one or more of the seven courses, which also will feature industry tours and demonstrations.

The program also will offer the opportunity to learn more about the Australian wool pipeline, including how that wool is purchased, manufactured into textile products and marketed.
