Competency Training News

Meet John Ryan

POSTED: September 29 2011

John Ryan is a recent addition to CT’s team, specialising in training for Hazardous Areas.

What did you do before Competency Training?
I’ve been in the Electrical industry for 40 years. I completed my apprenticeship as an electrician in London and worked my way through a range of commercial and industrial projects. I emigrated to Australia 30 years ago and worked on some commercial projects in Darwin and Brisbane but have spent most of my time in mining, and oil and gas. For the last 7 years I have worked as an EEHA inspector mainly in Moomba South Australia and surrounding oil and gas satellites. I’ve done some work for the Karratha Gas Plant and the Pluto project in Karratha also.

What qualifications do you have?
Cert IV Electrical Contracting Studies, Hazardous Area Competencies and Cert IV Training & Assessment. Plus a degree from the school of Hard Knocks.

Best holiday ever?
Visited my sister, in the South of England a couple of years ago. I haven’t seen her very much since coming to Australia. We drove through the countryside and along the South Coast and visited some beautiful places.

Favourite city in the world?
Would be Brisbane. It’s a lovely city, the parklands at Southbank and the Mt Cootha lookout are my favourite places.

Why Competency Training?
I’ve been interested in getting involved in training for some time. I’ve worked with a number of people who did their hazardous area training through CT and they were very happy with the training they received and the delivery of the course. CT has a very good name in the industry and I was more than pleased with the opportunity to come on board.
