OTML submits three year training plan

Ok Tedi Mining Limited (OTML) has recently submitted its Three Year Training Plan (2017-2019) to the National Training Council (NTC) and Department of Labour and Industrial Relations (DLIR) at the OTML Port Moresby Office.


The submission of the plan which is a requirement under Clause 29 of the NTC Act 1991 captures the achievements and challenges of the previous three years and the Company’s programs to training, mentoring, and developing its national employees.

OTML has a long and proud history of producing many qualified and competent Papua New Guinean nationals including Apprentices, Graduates and Preferred Area trainees who have been absorbed into the job market both internationally and locally.

“Ok Tedi has a strong commitment to training Papua New Guineans not only for the benefit of the Company but also to the human resource development of PNG.

The many years of training has also been a good investment as we have a dedicated and committed workforce who continue to make a positive contribution to the success of Ok Tedi,” Deputy CEO, Musje Werror said.

A delegation led by the Director NTC, Kinsella Geoffrey recently visited Tabubil where they were taken on a tour of the Mine and a presentation on the Three Year Plan was made by the Human Resources management team.

Geoffrey said that they were impressed with the Mining Operation and Ok Tedi’s commitment to training PNG Nationals.

Meanwhile, the Star Mountain Institute of Training (SMIT), the OTML training arm recognised under the NTC, was recently granted a two year registration.
