November's Dogging Course

Posted 05th December 2018

Practical course components

In the week of 19th - 23rd November, METL conducted a five-day CPCCLDG3001A Licence To Perform Dogging course at the Maritime Training Centre in Henderson with seven Stevedores attending. 

Over the duration of the course, the Stevedores undertook classroom and practical learning and rigorous assessment of the course content. For many, this course allowed them to develop new skills which they will take to their respective workplaces, as well as consolidate existing skills and knowledge gained in the industry.

METL’s Ruth Kirley provided the Administrative support for the course and was blown away with the feedback from the students regarding the facility and the training.  “We have this amazing facility and it was great to see how effective the learning was – in the classroom, out in the warehouse and on the pad out the back. The enthusiasm of all the attendees was great to witness” says Ruth.

METL CEO Simon Earle praised the efforts of the students and trainers, saying: “There’s a lot to cover in the course; there’s plenty to do in the classroom before the practical work and it’s pretty heavy on the mathematics. The way the group engaged and worked through it, even when it was difficult, was quite impressive. We want to thank the trainers, Tom and Paul who did an excellent job of making everyone comfortable and passing on all of their experience.”

Students are now eligible for a High-Risk Licence in Dogging, issued by Worksafe Western Australia.

Everyone involved should be proud of a successful week and we look forward to seeing plenty more maritime workers through in the future.

Day OF The Seafarer

Posted 25th June 2018

Every year on June 25th, the world celebrates Day of the Seafarer which highlights the importance of seafarers in our lives. The day is not only about acknowledging the contributions that they have to the world economy and civil society, but also the risks and personal costs they bear within their chosen profession.

2018 campaign of Day of the Seafarer is about celebrating seafarers and informing the world about how and why seafarers are indispensable to everyone. With that in mind, the tagline for this year’s event is “Seafarers Wellbeing”. The theme was also chosen to coincide with last year’s theme of mental health.
