Industry Ambassador – Dale McMullen

Dale is Australias international gold medallist from the 2007 WorldSkills International Competition in Japan. He also received the title Best of Nation for his marks and overall performance in the competition.

Dale is from Western Australia. He is employed by G-Mac Auto Centre, Myaree, and attended Challenger TAFE, Fremantle. His Automobile Technology expert is Grant Petch who works at the University of Ballarat.

Dale has been working with cars with his father since he was a young boy. His dad is the owner of G-Mac Auto Centre, where Dale began his apprenticeship. Dale now works alongside his father specialising in the modern diagnostic areas, while his dad works in the traditional aspects.

When Dale entered the WorldSkills Regional Competition for Western Australia he had no idea of the level of skill amongst the competitors. He believes that his success as a gold medallist in the regional and national competitions has brought himself greater confidence.

For Dale, one of the perks of his trade is being able to work on his own car and build it to his own tastes. Dale's aim is to continue improving his skills and gain further experience, and is considering moving into Motorsport in the future.
