Advanced skills traineeship in PNG

Competency Training has been working in Papua New Guinea (PNG) for the past 10 months to deliver a Mechanical & Instrumentation Traineeship Program for local students. This program was designed to provide base level trade knowledge and skills to the participants.

Below is a snapshot of the project and our time in PNG.

The Project Brief

The client required Mechanical & Instrumentation Trade training for students who will be working in their Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facility.

They were looking for an alternative to their training methodology of an off-site off-the-shelf training program.

The objective was to deliver graduates that had more exposure to the client’s facility, work procedures and increased hand skills in relation to their trade tasks.

Our Solution

Our approach was simple, we leveraged our site based knowledge, expansive training delivery experience and our technical expertise to customise and contextualise the curriculum to suit the client’s site.

Working on-site with the key stakeholders, our instructors were able to integrate the training with on-site activities, incorporate the site’s procedures and adjust the curriculum to suit site-based maintenance activities.


The program participants graduated with confidence in their skills and in-depth knowledge of the site in which they will carry out the work. This has positioned them far ahead of the traditional trainees graduating from an off-site training program.

“Integrating the training with on-site procedures and work practices has led to a reduction in the training burden of operational personnel, allowing them to focus on the plant maintenance activities. The trainees graduated with the confidence and competence to be value adding to the maintenance team as they join the operational roster”
