Released 21/12/2012

Teterin management has recognised and responded to the need to provide additional in-house training to promising young tradesmen and senior apprentices. The training course has been designed to address identified needs specific to Teterin’s business and its employees and has involved Forsythes Training to prepare a tailored course at Certificate 111 level which acts as an introduction to our ‘Frontline Management’ course. The course has been named the Teterin Step-Up training and contains modules in; Applying Risk Management Processes; Communicate Information; Contribute to Team Effectiveness; and, Support the Operational Plan.

All course modules included Teterin specific information such as Safety procedures; Quality procedures, Operations Planning. Managing Director, Peter Burgess, commented “We have paid particular attention to making this course interesting and relevant to Teterin’s business. By including the Teterin Policies, procedures and methods of running our compliance systems, we have made the course much more interesting and it has been an excellent way to train our up and coming future leaders”.

The course attendees were: John-Paul Beguin; Cameron Perry; Ryan Murray and Hennie Bissett. On 12 December 2012 the trainees were presented with their training certificate from Forsythes which recorded that they had successfully passed the Step-Up Training course.

Hennie Bissett commented: “The step up program was well presented, in an easy to digest format with both theory and practical application. I liked the comprehensive coverage of material and the instructor, who communicated effectively in an understandable way. From this course I now have better communication skills and a better understanding of Corporate operations, Operation charts and levels of operation within the company. “

John-Paul Beguin further commented: “The Step-Up program was run really well and was set out in a way which made each topic easy to understand and relate to. This program was a real eye opener into just how much planning goes into running a business and showed how much more goes on outside of the workshop floor. I think all who participated benefited greatly from the program.”

Peter Burgess, Teterin’s Managing Director commented: “This course is a new innovation for Teterin and I am very pleased to say it has been a great success. The boys involved enjoyed the course and having the opportunity to understand that there is much more that goes into personnel management, planning and leadership. The most pleasing thing is to see them actually applying the techniques they have learned by writing Work Instructions and conducting Tool Box Talks for safety. The boys’ have really responded to the opportunity and is an excellent stepping stone for them to do the Frontline Management course next year”.
