Position Partners’ Josh Allen graduates from Cat Institute

Congratulations to Position Partners Victoria’s Josh Allen, who recently graduated from the Caterpillar Institute of Victoria and Tasmania (CIVT), and who works with Matt Brown installing machine control system.

Josh, who joined Laser Beams 12 months ago after serving his apprenticeship at William Adams, featured in the June 2008 edition of The Earthmover & Civil Contractor, as a recent graduate of the CIVT.

“[The course] was just great,” said Joshua Allen, “it gave me just what I was looking for!”

After a year of engineering at university, Joshua figured it wasn’t for him – he wanted something “more practical, more hands-on.”

So when as a then-apprentice diesel mechanic with William Adams, he was offered the opportunity to spend a week a month for three years studying with CVIT, he had nothing to lose.

“It’s had a great effect on my whole life,” he cheerfully enthuses, “I am really enjoying my career in the industry.”

What Joshua really liked about the instruction was that it gave him practical, up-to-the-minute instruction.

“The good thing was that as well as the theory, you got to work with the equipment and the test gear – there was lots of it – and everything was up to date.”

His training in the Cat Institute is now proving invaluable when working with Position Partners Victoria’s customers and clients installing laser and GPS systems in heavy earthmoving equipment.
