Gary Gotobed of Watlington Quarry is the first Frimstone Quarry Manager to successfully complete his QCF Level 4 qualification in Process Operations.
Gary and the other Frimstone quarry managers started the training programme in July 2011 supported by Jonathan Pitt a QCF Assessor working on behalf of the industry training provider SERAC.
The Quarries Regulations 1999 requires all quarry operators to deploy competent managers and staff. The QCF assessment process is designed for Quarry Managers to achieve a suitable level of competence to manage a quarry safely.
Gary and his peer group have been able to demonstrate their experience and knowledge and through the support and assessment provided by Jonathan are now able to prove their competency.
