  • We want to ensure that our world-class facilities are managed by highly skilled and experienced technicians with gold operational standards. But this isn’t easy when you are in the midst of a large regional build-out programme.

    We’ve been working with DCPRO to build a training plan that can be rolled out to all facilities. To start, one technical staff member from each facility across Australia has been enrolled on the 77-hour DCSpecialist ‘Operations’ certificate track. They’ve found the courses immensely useful.
