Air Radiators Training Program
Air Radiators Training Program Participants, Phil Nicol, (Air Radiators), Tui Toby – Rail Operations Manager, Rodney Colloson – Service Technician, Jason McCoghlan – Workshop Supervisor, Scott Dickson – Workshop Supervisor, and Chris Bransten – Workshop Supervisor.
For many years, Air Radiators has appreciated that Apprentices in our industry are the key to our future. From this philosophy, we have supported numerous Apprentice training programs including members of the Caterpillar Institute Victoria, and more recently Cummins Engine Company, Laverton Branch.
Air Radiators’ support of Cummins Apprentices has seen us host a number of 1st and 2nd year trainees as well as a number of the Cummins Laverton Team Leaders and Supervisors. The program introduced the technologies around engine cooling systems and drew links between some of the trade school learnings and the applications that as trade Diesel Fitters they will potentially work on in the future.
Mark Pellington, Service Manager Cummins Laverton said, “Both groups thoroughly enjoyed it and have a new appreciation for the manufacture of radiators and the technology around design and production”.
Air Radiators’ involvement in the Cummins program provides the vital link between secondary schooling and industry as the Apprentices progress through their formal learning program.
Our support of Cummins’ training program has also extended to the supply of cooling systems typical of those used in truck applications for the training of Apprentice Technicians on simulation rigs allowing rebuild training and fault finding of engines and engine cooling systems.
Air Radiators is pleased to be investing in our future, through training the future users of our products.
