JEAN BILALI, PAST STUDENT image

"The course has benefitted in quite a few ways, but most importantly it has given me a clear understanding of my new role, allowing me to approach my tasks differently to the way of my predecessor. I introduced a necessary personnel training plan for each employee in our mine site from the knowledge gained through the course."
