Caterpillar appointment targets training program

CHAMBER of Minerals and Energy training guru Irene Ioannakis has joined The Caterpillar Institute of WA.

Recently appointed as the general manager, Ms Ioannakis spent four years with the Chamber of Minerals and Energy as the director of safety education and training.

She said she would be focusing on introducing new education programs to the institute.

“At the moment we train apprentices, post-trade, and operators with a focus on Caterpillar equipment,” Ms Ioannakis said.

“I’m also looking further afield and looking at implementing programs for frontline supervisors and building succession planning.”

Ms Ioannakis said she hoped to offer development courses by the end of June.

Her new role encompasses both her training expertise and the challenge of being in charge of an expanding organisation.

“I initially applied because of my passion and commitment for training, especially for youngsters, and secondly to head up an organisation was a career goal of mine,” she said.

The Caterpillar Institute will open a similar facility in Victoria later this year followed by one in New Zealand next year and Ms Ioannakis said there would be many more to come.
