The Royal Australian Navy’s Training Force received three finalist awards in the recent Australian Institute of Training and Development 2019 Excellence Awards.

The excellence awards recognise outstanding achievement in learning and development, with three finalist awards serving as an outstanding endorsement of the quality work that Training Force produces.

The Training Authority Safety and Seaworthiness course ‘Navy Working at Heights Training’ was a finalist in the category ‘Best Blended Learning Solution’.

The Training Force Headquarters course ‘The Mariner Development Program’ was a finalist in two categories: ‘Best Blended Learning Solution’ and ‘Best Onboarding/Induction Program’.

The awards represented a significant milestone for Lieutenant Ilona McLean, the Training Development Officer in the Learning Solutions Support team.

“Achieving finalist status in three categories is a remarkable achievement.

“This recognition by our industry partners illustrates Navy’s continued commitment to the delivery of innovative, high quality training products capable of competing against multinational organisations,” Lieutenant McLean said.
