Bosses and team join to begin Certificate in Civil Construction course


Do as I do and as I say … the saying goes, and that’s exactly the example the Roadside Services management team are championing.

Roadside Services and Solutions Manager, Civil Works Manager Glenn McAsey and Civil Works Administrator Daniel Kennett are going back to school to support their team who have enrolled in the RII30915 Certificate III in Civil Construction course.

When the Roadside Services Victorian Civil Works team of Daniel, Ashley, Dale, Craig, Tim, Aaron and Charng were approached to undertake, they jumped at the idea and knowing they had the support of their bosses also working alongside them gave them the extra enthusiasm their bosses were prepared to work at the new qualification as well to support them.

The qualification will build on the various licences and competencies the team already holds.

Roadside Services Managing Director Jared Watkins says the certificate will provide further recognition of the extensive skills and experience they apply in their roles every day.

“We always implement best practice and standards and this course will formalise the team’s expertise with a formal qualification.

“Achieving best practice and working to the highest standards are the two principles embedded within our operation for sign, barrier, guard rail and bollard installations as well as road reconstruction, kerb preparation, footpath construction and drainage installation,” Jared Watkins says.

“The dedication of this team, lead by Civil Works Manager Glenn McAsey and supported by Civil Works Administrator Daniel Kennett and under the watchful eye of our Senior Civil Engineer and Operations Manager Matt Balderston, to enrol in this course and obtain this qualification is a great example of Roadside living up to our value proposition to offer customers consistent, quality service, fulfilled by professional, skilled and reliable people.

“We are proud to be investing in their training and development,” says Jared Watkins.

The team has been enrolled through the National Skills Institute with the course being run through MEGT in Ringwood.

The course will be run over the next 18 months onsite at Roadside Services and Solutions Croydon operations. Trainers will run modules on site each month with the team completing various units of competency each month.
