VIDEO: Easy Guides Australia makes heavy machinery training a breeze
Melbourne based publisher Easy Guides Australia produces picture based, easy to understand learning guides for industry workers completing government-recognised training or obtaining their high risk licenses. We spoke to the company about its work, challenges in the industry, and its future.
Under current government legislation, industry operation deemed high risk, for example scaffolding work and forklift operation, require valid licenses, while earthmoving operators need to have completed industry recognised training.
A lack of easy-to-understand learning material in the market for tradies has led to the establishment of Easy Guides Australia more than a decade ago.
Managing Director James Tennant tells us how he evolved from a workplace English and literacy teacher to founder of Easy Guides, while Operations Manager Cal Osborne explains the future of the business, which includes 3D animation and the creation of multimedia material for online training.
