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.

Nine participants from the University of Tasmania, seven from Nyrstar, four from Lightning Protection International and one from TasWater received their Certificate IV qualification in Competitive Systems and Practices, and proved that it is not just the manufacturing sector that can benefit from an understanding of Lean Principals but any business where there are processes and systems in place.

The Group was applauded by Productivity Improvers Directors Clynton Jaffray and Michael Bonney and Mr Robert Miley, Assistant General Manager - Marine, Defence and Business Services with the Department of State Growth.

Director Michael Bonney, who was the Instructor for this group of students said their work was outstanding.

"Each student is responsible for the completion of a Project within their workplace. It allows them to put into practice the Lean Tools that they are taught in the classroom, and ensures that they are working with their colleagues to make changes occur straight away. These students had outstanding Projects and the quality of work is to be commended. Productivity Improvers are constantly impressed by the preparedness of our students to take the theory, apply the tools and measure the benefits. We encourage all Tasmanian businesses and those in the public sector to contact us and discuss building on the capacity that exisits in their staff."
