Partnership: Page MacRae
We have worked in a local partnership with Page MacRae Engineering (Mt Maunganui), to build our local training facility for Heights and Confined Space. This has been running for over five years now, and Elite Training also offers Page MacRae Breathing Apparatus and Emergency Rescue Team capabilities if required by their clients
We have a training partnership the Pacific Coast Technical Institute (a registered PTE) in Mt Maunganui. Mark and Fiona at PCTI are the team that keep us on the straight and narrow with NZQA.
PCTI focus on Primary and Vocational training nationwide.
WALKING THE TALK
At Elite Training, our trainers don’t just have the basic height qualifications. We all hold technical Rope Access and Advanced Rope-Rescue qualifications, and have a passion for height work. We enjoy what we do, and what we teach.
That passion shows through in our training.
There’s a difference in the training, when the instructor has actually done the work they are teaching. That’s the Elite Training “point of difference”. Our trainers work within the industry. Outside of training, we work with many engineering and building maintenance companies, to conduct specialist Rope Access work on their behalf.
With Elite Training Services also running regular Confined Space Entries for Non-Destructive Thickness Testing and Internal Inspections; Auditing / Consultancy and Practical Rescue accessing (“testing” of rescue plans); Anchor Installation and Re-certification.
We continually keep our industry experience up-to-date.
With our specialist work taking us to many different industrial sites: Gas-lines, within underground pipeline and service tunnels; Process vessels in a range of industries, from Dairy through to Cement Manufacture; Paper Mills through to Food Productions Vessels.
This allows us to customise training and fully understand a client’s requirements.
With over 50 years of combined experience as full time Fire Fighters, the Elite Training specialist trainers have skills like Hazard ID, Incident Investigation, Breathing Apparatus, Fire Suppression and First Aid. These guys bring the skills to your workplace.
It all started with our South Island Manager (Kevin), a Senior Station Officer in Christchurch. We noticed what having Fire Fighters on board does for realistic training. We now have four on the payroll. -Kevin, Steve, Dion, and Hayden.
MAKING IT INTERESTING
We have all heard “Health & Safety training is boring!”… Well, nobody can say they have never been part of, or party to an accident or incident. We use these past experiences to bring out a trainees own knowledge of Health & Safety. It is using a trainees past experience, and our experience in the industry, that we keep trainees interested. With our backgrounds, we have all, unfortunately, been part of Incident Investigation (root cause analysis). Whether that be within vehicle accidents or patient recovery within Search & Rescue situations.
When it goes wrong, we want to prevent it happening again. It’s that simple.
