Ruth Kirley: 3 Years At METL

August 18th 2014 was my first day at METL and it only feels like it was yesterday that I was walking through the METL doors and sitting at my desk for the first time.

As I sit here typing up my anniversary story, I reflect what has been accomplished over the past twelve months.

In September and October 2016 respectively, METL won NSW Medium Employer of the Year and the Maritime Services Award at the 21st Australian Shipping and Maritime Industry Awards.

In June 2017, our very first course commenced through our RTO with MAR20116 Certificate II Maritime Operations (Linespersons). This was another big achievement for our organisation as it was the start of the next phase for the organisation.

On a personal note, in November 2016, I was promoted from the position of Admin Officer to METLs Admin and Marketing Officer. I love the challenges that this new role has provided me and it has allowed me to develop more valuable skills.

The biggest highlight by far was co-organising METLs Maritime Centre grand opening in WA on April 6th 2017.After months of planning, I was able to attend the event and see what I contributed which was a mind blowing experience. I cannot wait for the challenges and milestones that METL will accomplish from the courses that will be operating through the METL Maritime Centre.

Looking back at the year as in an entirety, I am proud of what has been achieved and although there is much work ahead not only as a GTO, but also as an RTO, I am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities, which lie ahead not only for the coming year but the years to come.

METL has been playing a vital role, examining the industry, identifying opportunities, and responding to needs of the clientele.
