Training represents a continuous effort to improve employee proficiency and therefore strengthen an organisation’s performance.
At Graham A Brown & Associates, one of our core functions lies in transferring our vast knowledge of environment, WHS and quality practice and software to your staff. We impart skills and understanding in these areas enabling your team to carry out your policies and procedures with competence, including our offering of software programs.
We provide training to both individuals and organisations. Our public courses have allowed many individuals to gain environmental auditing qualifications, while our customised in-house SHEQ and software training programs are designed to align with our clients’ organisational needs. Over the years we have developed many short courses and training modules, as well as handbooks and procedure documents, which together provide a wide spectrum of training tools.
We have trained over 4,000 personnel internationally in many aspects of SHEQ management from directors and managers to the workforce, adapting courses to different jurisdictions and cultures, as well as training users of the software programs that we provide. Some of our offerings have been accredited by Exemplar Global and the UK-based Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA).
Our aim is to share our expertise through interactive, hands-on learning. We want to ensure that what you learn with us is practical and can be applied effectively in your workplace. Using a range of methods including face-to-face and internet learning, our training packages have something to offer every board or staff member from workplace to executive level. Our mentoring program is a one-on-one training opportunity for systems coordinators and administrators.
Our training materials are developed in line with the Standards Australia handbook HB 249-2000, Managing and Delivering Technical Training.
We provide software training on each of the configured applications, system administration, configurable reports, dashboards & scorecards, and home pages pertaining to the customer’s application(s).
Virtually every implementation of the our software systems will include a training component for both System Administrators and other users who have access to the software. This training is agreed to in the Service Agreement between the client and Graham A Brown & Associates and is provided by our experienced trainers.
Software training can take a number of forms:
Our trainers are practising consultants who have worked in a wide range of industries. Subsequently, we provide practical knowledge and examples that you can apply in your workplace.
This is an exceptional course. Graham and his team were extremely professional. This is a productive course with practical outcomes for our organisation. Thank you.
The workshop went really well. Sonja was FANTASTIC! Really great facilitation skills, knowledge and got on with everyone really well really easily.
The Waste Management & Audit Workshop was one of the best workshops I have attended; the delivery of the course by Graham Brown was expertly presented with practical active workshops where groups and individuals were willing participants. It was evident from Graham’s vast knowledge and hands on experience that every conceivable question was answered. I thoroughly recommend this course to anybody who is willing to participate and thus gain the knowledge that this course delivers for Waste Management and Auditing across all fields.
Just want to thank you for your highly professional and focused approach to developing the ‘Managing for Sustainability’ Manual. The day went very well and Graham managed to cover most of the material with ease and authority. Again many thanks for such a comprehensive [training] manual.
(One Day Training – Managing For Sustainability)
Excellent course, excellently presented. Great material. Knowledge of presenter fantastic! Great examples.
I would like to say that I really enjoyed the course and found your knowledge of the subjects very impressive. I have now decided to pursue a career in the environmental side and think that the course was of a great benefit to me.
Many thanks to Graham and yourself for the great opportunity to attend and complete your Environmental Auditors Course in Darwin. Many businesses in the NT have limited opportunity to pursue professional development courses such as this, interstate travel is usually the only option and the added expense can be inhibiting for many so thank you.
Again, I have to reiterate my appreciation of the efforts that yourself and Graham have put into developing a course of such high calibre. It was a great experience, and a very successful outcome (on many fronts) for me. I will be recommending your August course for a number of our people.
