The operations of four North-West companies have been significantly enhanced following the delivery of an innovative business improvement skills course, jointly funded by the State Government through Skills Tasmania.

The Elphinstone Light Weight Truck Body Project allowed 14 manufacturing industry employees from Elphinstone Pty Ltd, Southern Prospect, ISOTech Engineering and The Engineering Company to up-skill, and introduce efficiency practices back at their own workplaces after successfully completing qualification MSS40316 Certificate IV in Competitive Systems and Practices.

The project training was delivered by industry experts Productivity Improvers, with the Australian Maritime College,  (RTOID 60131) as the Registered Training Organisation for the qualification and funding.

Elphinstone aligned the learning initiative with an order it had secured from Grange Resources to design and build a new light weight tray for the miner's Caterpillar 789C haul trucks, which cart iron ore at the Savage River mine on the State's West Coast.

On February 5th Management of Nyrstar, Department of State Growth and the Australian Maritime College celebrated with 21 Certificate IV graduates from businesses across the state. Our training and assessment is provided on behalf of Australian Maritime College (RTOID 60131) . Qualifications are MSS30316 Certificate III in Competitive Systems and Practices, MSS40316 Certificate IV in Competitive Systems and Practices and MSS50316 Diploma in Competitive Systems and Practices.

Nyrstar proudly hosted the presentations which were made by Associate Professor of Vocational Education and Training for AMC, Peter Whitley.

Productivity Improvers staff were pleased to show the Minister for State Growth, Matthew Groom, how our training is increasing the efficiency of production at Penguin Composites.

John van der Woude, Director of this North West Coast niche manufacturing business, explained that management and staff were seeing real bottom line results for the business.

Productivity Improvers will be working with Minister Groom to demonstrate how competitive systems and practice can help improve productivity across Tasmania.
