The Australian Water Associations 2020 conference Gala Dinner awards at the Sunshine Coast Convention Centre in Queensland,  Mackay Regional Council, Whitsunday Regional Council, Townsville City Council, Cairns Regional Council and Burdekin Shire Council won a joint award for their Regional Water Industry Worker Pilot Program in The Organisational Excellence Award category.

Simmonds & Bristow congratulate these Councils on their award. We are proud to be councils Registered Training Organisation (RTO) on this very important and significant water industry training project and would like to thank both the councils’ teams and our training team for their efforts in making this happen and providing such great outcomes for learners and councils alike.

Attracting, training and retaining workers in regional areas has significant challenges. In response to this challenge, five regional councils partnered to review the skills of their workforce and reduce the risks to water quality across the regions. Challenging the traditional model, the project has seen these councils collaborate on an upskilling project for their employees. This program demonstrates true collaboration and leadership of the water industry within regional Queensland.

Simmonds & Bristow are an Australian Registered Training Organisation RTO 1735 providing specialty water industry training courses since 1991.
