Pacific Marine Group (PMG) is honoured to have received recognition of its commitment to the training and development of employees, being awarded the 2017 NQ Medium Employer of the Year at the Queensland Training Awards.
PMG believes in investing in it’s people. Supporting a wide range of training opportunities for employees, from apprenticeships through to specialised dive and marine qualifications. PMG is proud to say that 80% of tradespeople within the business have completed their apprenticeship in house, and remained working within the business for up to 10 years. A number of apprentices have also progressed into other roles within the business, or gone on to undertake a second trade qualification with us.
Employees are also provided support to complete training in fields outside of their primary area of employment, with Divers undertaking Fitting & Turning apprenticeships, Diesel Fitters undertaking MED 1 and MED 2 qualifications, and marine staff undertaking Project Management qualifications.
We would like to thank the Department of Education & Training for selecting PMG as the recipient of this award, along with Allara Learning for sponsoring the award.
Wish us luck for the state finals in September!
