Pinnacle Trains the Team on Manus Island

Manus Island is never far from the news.

Pinnacle were engaged this month to once again return to Manus Island to provide training to the site’s on-site Emergency Response operatives. It’s vital that these operatives have the best and most up-to-date skills to ensure the safety of all people and assets in their care.

This round of training included Operate Breathing Apparatus, Work Safely at Heights and Conduct Fire Team Operations.

Our trainer for this deployment Andrew Davis said it was encouraging to see the team so engaged in the training and their ongoing professional development.

We will be back!

Raymond the trainer spoke very clearly (important) and was obviously very knowledgeable about confined space. He highlighted practical applications and really got the “personal safety” message across to the group. I have done these courses before, however I got more out of this due to the “SKILL” of the trainer to get the critical messages across.

The practical exercises were helpful in executing all the theory we had learnt during the morning session. Having three practical exercises is a good strategy as I was able to gain something from each one confined space entry (mistakes I made plus observing others under a little pressure).

A good one-day course which I would recommend.
