Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union




The AMWU's Manufacturing Industry Skills Training and Apprenticeship Services (MISTAS) provides joint training courses in the areas of vocational education and training, competency standards implementation and assessment.

The establishment of MISTAS reflects the AMWU's recognition that Australian industry needs dynamic workers who acquire recognised, portable skills which in turn provide access to higher wages and improved job security.

We believe our members, and all Australian workers, need to have their skills and competencies recognised officially so that they can move between jobs and sectors.

Our expertise in vocational education and training puts the AMWU at the forefront of the implementation of career path progression and enterprise training plans. Our aim is to support Nationally Accredited Training that allows portability of skills and high wage/high skill jobs which contribute to Australia's prosperity by making us a leading manufacturing nation.

MISTAS provides an innovative link between AMWU members, TAFE and industry to provide streamlined and hassle-free access to the training you want.
