Verification of Competency - TAFE Queensland SkillsTech - Wheatstone LNG Project, Onslow WA.

TQ SkillsTech visits Wheatstone LNG Project, Onslow WA.

In February 2015, the Wheatstone Craft Skills Training Centre sponsored an onsite training forum to give preferred training organisations the opportunity to meet with on-site subcontractors to exhibit verification of competency and training product solutions.

A group of thirty-one (31) craft preferred suppliers attended the forum. TQ SkillsTech showcased training products for the CSG/LNG sector which included VoCs, gas industry awareness programs, process plant operations qualifications and recognition of prior learning.  A tour of the Wheatstone site build was also undertaken by the group.

Donna Playford, Business Manager represented TQ SkillsTech at the forum and stated that ‘the opportunity to build relationships and visit the site to see the progress of the plant was invaluable’.  Representatives were accommodated at the 1056 bed Fly Camp and toured the onshore LNG plant and construction village sites. The entire construction village will eventually house around 5,000 workers. Graeme McCauley, Training Supervisor, Wheatstone Project LNG Plant, Bechtel (Western Australia) who put together the arrangements for the forum, said that ‘it was a success in a great number of ways’.

TQ SkillsTech conduct verification of competency services for numerous subcontractors of the Wheatstone LNG Project for electrical, refrigeration and air-conditioning, diesel mechanic, fitter and turner, welding, HDPE, process instrumentation, painting and sandblasting and waste water treatment trades.  For more details on VOC service (Verification of Competency), call:
