"Well, well! Lance say welcome to my fellow conspirator and adopted little sister with the voice of reason! Lynel, perhaps you have touched on a little more here.  I think the range of training that training providers take on is often more than…"

"Hi Lance, what an interesting topic.  The comments thus far are really awesome.  When looking at specific topics, one cannot benchmark one profession with another for example an operator in lifting machinery against a firefighter or an…"

"Hi Andre, Technically correct, but your wording of Learner/Assessor ratio is incorrect.  It is the Learner/Facilitator ratio that is 4:1.  There is only one reference to a Learner/Assessor ratio in the NCOP, and that is "1 hour…"

"Hi Lance, Couldn't agree with you more, although there a number of instances where regulatory compliance requires "re-certification". In terms of the Driven Machinery Regulations, it has always been a requirement that Operators must…"

EOI Process and other communications through Services Seta
