    Armadale's new TAFE Centre in Forrest Road will open for business in early February.
     
    Education and Training Minister Kay Hallahan said the fitout of the premises would be completed by February 3 and it would be fully furnished by February 12.
     
    Courses offered will include office and secretarial studies, equine management, new opportunities for women (NOW) programs and possibly some community adult education courses.
     
    In second semester, a small business management course will be established.
     
    Mrs Hallahan said a TAFE presence in Armadale would dramatically boost opportunities in the south east metropolitan corridor.
     
    It also meant many Armadale residents would no longer have to travel to TAFE colleges in Thornlie or Midland to undertake courses.
     
    "The Government has taken out a five-year lease on the 400 square metre centre, with an option to renew for another five years," she said.
     
    Mrs Hallahan said training opportunities were an important part of Carmen Lawrence's plan to reshape the Western Australian economy: Adding Value.
     
    "The Government, through TAFE colleges and centres, is committed to ensuring Western Australia has a highly skilled, flexible and innovative workforce," she said.
