Baulkham Hills resident and Sydney Water employee, Michelle Jones, wins prestigious TAFE NSW State Medal for completing her study in Spatial Information Services (GIS).
Spatial Information Services teaches you how to use spatial system technologies such as land information systems (LIS) and geographic information systems (GIS) as well as automated mapping, facilities management systems (AM/FM) and image processing systems that use aerial and satellite imagery.
Sydney Water, Managing Director, Kevin Young congratulates Michelle on her outstanding achievement.
He said: “It takes dedication and a conscientious mind to come top in the state. Michelle has looked to the future and taken the initiative to enrol in a course that has allowed her to extend her skillset and to add value to her work at Sydney Water.”
Michelle Jones works in Sydney Water’s Business Customer Services section where she helps manage a database to support Sydney Water’s services to businesses.
Michelle said that: “I was really interested in doing the course as I thought it would help me progress in my job. I have already been able to use my GIS knowledge to help analyse where issues in our waste water system occur.”
“I really want to continue to use my expertise from the course to become involved in more projects.”
“The teachers at TAFE Riverina have just been fantastic. I have appreciated the continuous encouragement and help I received during the 4 year course.”
The annual TAFE NSW State Medals are awarded to students who achieve the highest marks across the state based on their academic results.
Michelle Jones completed the course part-time through distance learning and finished last year.
