MMJV has engaged Daltron Training for the first time to conduct some application trainings up at its Hidden Valley campsite, Morobe. We usually have some of their staff come down to our training center to attend trainings but this is the first time they have asked for a trainer hire onsite to conduct some courses.
As a result I have been tasked with the training and am currently up here in Hidden Valley campsite. I am writing this blog from the HR Professional Services Division - Training Office.

I arrived at Bulolo airstrip at around 8.00am in the morning and waited for about an hour before the driver took me on a two hour 45km drive uphill to the campsite. The weather was fine so the scenery was really beautiful. The weather got colder as we climbed to the peak of the ridges. After passing through two checkpoints, we finally arrived at the camp site. I was pretty much excited as this was my first onsite training to a mine operation site. After all the usuall security checks and visitor ID pass was given, I was finally taken to the administration building where room keys were given for the next two weeks I'll be spending at the camp.

The weather was very cold up here at the camp and I had to double jackets just to keep myself warm. After breakfast, the Training team had to take me on a short tour of the office and basically where I'll be spending most of the day for the rest of my stay here. Like all other mines, its compulsory that you must be dressed in proper PPE's everyday. My company had arranged for my PPE's before I came up here so I was very much prepared on my side as well. (hehe)
