New consultancy firm offers heavy-duty machinery training for industrial workers


A new consultancy and training business that focuses on heavy-duty machinery skills development, which can provide contractors and workers in the industrial field with training, was officially opened on Tuesday.

According to Chavez John, the managing director of J&W training and consultancy, the company is responding to the heavy equipment training needs of the country by providing experienced operators and trainees with the relevant knowledge and training to perform well on worksites.

Its objective is to bridge the gap between companies that need work done but do not have the time to render on-the-job training.

The company steps in and delivers on the individual training needs of the company.

“We partner with a company and we want to help those junior operators, even those senior operators, to improve their skill level to handle all the jobs that are needed,” the managing director said.

With ten years of experience in heavy-duty operations under his belt, John intends to pass on the knowledge he has gained to young professionals.

The company was officially opened on Tuesday at the Transport and Harbour General Sports Club at Thomaslands, Georgetown.

Some of the services the company can provide include training to operate excavators, bulldozers and backhoe loaders, and they hope to soon offer training to handle cranes, telehandlers, and other industrial high-lift equipment.

“As a heavy equipment owner you want to ensure that you get the best out of that equipment. You want to ensure that your operators are skilled and they represent safety, represent your company well, preserving the equipment’s life and doing exactly what you need them to do – increasing efficiency and productivity,” John said.

The company will also work along with the government of Guyana through the Board of Industrial Training to provide persons who graduate from programmes with additional knowledge.

According to John, the key focus is to ensure that workers can operate machinery to the best of their abilities.
