Currently the industry is undergoing an unprecedented demand for Geomembrane installation. This demand has depleted the current resources that are available in Australia of trained and competent personnel to meet the current resourcing requirements.
There is a risk that by using inadequately trained personnel the resulting integrity of many new installations may be compromised. This could in turn lead to significant substandard performance of liners leading to environmental harm and possible litigation actions.
Our training programs ensures that welding personnel, either being new to the industry, or already experienced are competent in welding techniques and understand the limitations and theory of those techniques.
We are passionate about ensuring that the integrity of our industry is maintained and in turn exceed our clients expectations.
