Technology company Schrole has furthered its relationship with mining giant Rio Tinto after securing $655,000 worth of work.
The Osborne Park-based company received purchase orders from Rio for on-the-job training programs across the miner’s facilities in Western Australia.
Schrole will provide training programs at 47 locations, which will hinge off courses delivered in the first half of the 2023 financial year.
The tech company has been engaged with Rio since 2007 to develop and contextualise courses for its staff.
It will deliver the contract through its training solutions department Schrole Develop.
Schrole managing director Rob Graham said their relationship with Rio continued to grow.
“Training is one of our two sources of revenue from our full-suite HR talent management solution, and the on-the-job training programs we deliver for mining companies is a core part of that revenue,” he said.
“The demand for the minerals that Rio Tinto mine is increasing.
“Therefore, it is important that Rio Tinto’s staff need to be well equipped with the knowledge and tools to deliver for its clients and keep supply chains running smoothly across multiple industries.”
Schrole also creates and implements training programs for other mining companies including BHP and Fortescue Metals Group, according to the company.
On the ASX, Schrole shares were trading up 6.34 per cent to 33.5 cents at 12.18PM AWST.
Rio Tinto shares were trading down 0.71 per cent to $111.46.
