At 45 years old, an ambitious family man named Tony McKewin living in Mackay, experienced a light bulb moment. As a Deputy Mine Maintenance Manager and Electrical Engineer, he knew first hand that there lacked some quality services. They were usually expensive, far away, and not very helpful. Which is why in 2005, he founded his first labour hire business called Mackay Engineering Solutions which he later sold in 2008.
Just one year later, he began the makings of a more specialised training services business that was to become Volt Edge. Tony is uniquely placed to develop our training courses and material with the background of an electrician and the insight of an electrical engineer. In 2013, Volt Edge had found itself rapidly expanding and becoming increasingly popular nation-wide. Tony then made the decision to move Volt Edge’s headquarters from Mackay to Brisbane. In a domino effect, training locations such as Adelaide, Cairns and Perth become available.
Fast forward to the year 2019, Volt Edge now offers 65 courses in 8 different locations across Australia and enrolments of over 15, 000 students.
