Qld Minerals & Energy Academy
DTE was recently invited to attend an educational day at the Qld Minerals & Energy Academy where select businesses showcased a theme of their business to 15 year old female students from a variety of schools. The intent was to support the young ladies in their future career paths. DTE conducted a presentation of Fit For Work and Rehabilitation and Return to Work to the students. As it turned out the students have had some exposure to the fit for work concept by listening to their parents discussions. However they did find the thought of the rigorous testing requirements quite alarming. Of significant interest to them was alcohol screening and I suppose this was close to their heart as soon they will all have exposure to this when they commence driving a motor vehicle.
Grand Opening at 12 Little Bramston Street
Down To Earth Results opened its door on the 5th February with Gladstone’s Mayor doing the honours of cutting the caution tape with a crowd of 70 people who have been the on the journey with Trevor and Kerryanne over the past 7 years of Down To Earth Results being in business.
A cake was made to represent the external building and this was cut and shared in honour of this magnificent facility which Gladstone now has.
This facility is tastefully decorated to ensure all who come to Down To Earth Results have a great comfortable experience within. The facility currently has two rooms with ample space to train 14 and 20 students respectively. Re configuration of these rooms can take many more people with adjustments to table settings to suit the occasion. A huge common area boasts a magnificent student/guest area kitchenette and a formal kitchen for catering purposes with a lounge and alfresco area for those who use the facility. In addition council approval has been granted to extend an awning along the side of the facility where a practical workshop area will be set up in the future.

DTE recently acquired a training assistant called Rodger. Rodger represents 45kg of dead weight and is an aspiring actor, allowing students a different perspective of rescue and first aid response in an emergency event.
RESTA Reptile Capture & Relocation
June 2016 DTE Training & Safety Skills was approached by QGC to conduct reptile capture and relocation, to allow their employees the ability to relocate reptiles found on work sites.
RESTA (formally Radical Reptiles) were happy to travel to Gladstone to provide their services and knowledge, bringing with them a variety of 'friendly' reptiles.
