Arc Manufacturing Limited recognised 22 of the company’s technical employees at its Bell Road office recently.

These employees were certified as machine operators under the Heart Trust NSTA’s Workforce Certification Programme, after completing over 126 hours of training and assessments.

Rian Forbes, one of the 22 certified employees, stated, “I am always open to opportunities where I can grow and influence my peers, so I am happy I got the chance to participate in the programme. As challenging as it was, it was worth it”

The ISO 9001:2015 certified company believes its staff is one of its most important stakeholders and, therefore, is committed to consistently investing in their professional development. This will add value, not only to employees but also to the company.

During his address to the honourees, Acting Director Business Development and Workforce Solutions at the HEART TRUST NSTA, Marlon Johnson highlighted the significance of their certification, before encouraging the group to continue with their educational pursuits and upward mobility.

“The certificate you hold separates you from the average individual, so be proud of yourselves. You can go anywhere in the world to show that you are trained and certified as Machine Operators.  Your certificate is yours for life because you put in the work, and no one can take that from you”

Over the years, the building materials specialist has successfully partnered with the HEART TRUST NTSA to train its employees in various disciplines, such as customer service, forklift operating, and machine operating. The company plans to continue this important partnership in the future.
