CY O’Connor selects DTEC

CY O’Connor Institute is recognised as an innovative provider of education and training services that contribute to regional and state workforce development. Their mission is to provide quality education and training services to enable students in the Wheatbelt and beyond to achieve their potential.

C.Y. O’Connor Institute’s regional campuses are located in Northam, Narrogin, Merredin and Moora across the Wheatbelt. The Institute is dedicated to providing first class training to all its students offering Certificate, Diploma and Degree Qualifications in subjects ranging from Agriculture, Business, Children and Community Services and Trades, and is recognised as the preferred training provider in the Wheatbelt.

Through these high standards John Scott, Managing director of C.Y. O’Connor identified RAC DTEC as a prime partner to address specific challenges being faced by their students when moving around The Wheatbelt. Whilst in the process of organising a grant to deliver driver training for school leavers, John realised that his own staff were also at risk.
