Entura and IPM joint finalists at Training Awards 2017

September 4, 2017


Specialist power and water consulting firm Entura and the Institute of Project Management (IPM) were a finalist at the Industry Collaboration Award in the Business and Training Provider category of the 2017 Tasmanian Training Awards.

“We’re delighted to have been partnering with IPM to help develop project management capability for our people and to share this knowledge with the industry more broadly,” said Mark Wilson, Delivery Manager at Entura, who is also involved with facilitating project management training.

“With more than 400 projects in Entura’s work program, any improvements in our ability to deliver projects more effectively and efficiently benefits the business and the project stakeholders.”   

IPM and Entura started working together in early 2013 with the delivery of traditional project management skill-set training. Following the success of that program, the organisations began discussing how IPM’s program of nationally accredited project management education could be fully integrated into the day-to-day work activities of Entura.

“We’re thrilled about being selected as a finalist for this award with Entura, which really celebrates our long-term collaboration,” said Ian McMahon, IPM Managing Director. “As a result of our work, IPM continues to deliver project management training programs that combine Entura’s hard-earned body of project knowledge and global best-practice to realise direct workplace benefits.”

The Tasmanian Training Awards are conducted annually by Skills Tasmania, Department of State Growth. The awards recognise the achievements of apprentices, trainees and vocational students, and also recognise industry, employers and training organisations dedicated to providing high-quality training and improving the workforce skills.
