RCT has had a strong presence in Brisbane since 2012; however, a recent change in location has resulted in the company moving in to state-of-the-art premises, well-equipped to provide first-class training.

Three times the size of RCT’s original Brisbane branch; the new office is complete with large reception area, bench repair space, workshop area, meeting and training room. On top of all of this, the branch is conveniently located within a 30 minute drive from Brisbane airport and can be accessed from Bruce Highway (the main highway in the city).

Although RCT provide training both on and off site to cater to the needs of clients; the inaugural training (delivered to operators from two different mine sites) recently completed at the new branch was deemed a huge success due to a number of factors.

The spacious training room, the support-gear and exposure to the extensive knowledge of Brisbane based staff gave the course a superior edge”, said RCT’s Brisbane Account Manager Waye Carrington.

“The Brisbane facility makes a great training hub, especially for the experienced technicians,” he said.

Fibre optic control station

Resident RCT expert Jared Collard was present at the training session to speak to attendees about fibre optic control station for surface control familiarisation. The popular solutions are used to increase production when operating underground machines from the surface as they allow for continuous machine operation while removing the operator from a potentially hazardous area.

RCT’s Brisbane Branch Manager Jack Gee shared his expertise on communication systems, taking them through a detailed lesson.

Mr Gee said he enjoyed being able to convey his extensive knowledge to attendees who were all keen to learn.

“It was a great opportunity for us to give a more detailed insight into how the systems work and to answer any questions along the way,” he said.

“I was able to equip them with the knowledge and insight needed to ensure they will be able to quickly and efficiently fix any problems that may arise.”

I really enjoy assisting others and getting to share my experience with people thirsty for knowledge – I get a real kick out of it.
