South Island scoop!

And a New Zealand first for company employing qualified professional Resin Applicators.

Clint Richardt and Darji Rasmussen of Ranger Specialist Coatings, Construction Coatings are now proud holders of BCITO’s newest qualification - the National Certificate in Flooring (Resin Flooring Application) Level 4.

Brad Sandri, Managing Director of Ranger says, “To be leading the way and setting a new industry precedent by having fully qualified resin applicators in our team has really created a great sense of pride throughout the company.

“This means Ranger Specialist Coatings is one of the first to meet manufacturer’s requirements and standards. That’s a huge achievement and sets a new benchmark for quality within the industry. From our customers’ perspective, this qualification signals that our work will continue to be delivered to the highest standard in resin manufacturing. The major selling advantage for us now is that we can provide the primary industries with an exclusive trade standard.

The trade desperately needed standards and requirements set and, after years of the qualification being in the pipeline, we’re rapt that BCITO has delivered it. As others qualify, it will definitely work towards bringing consistency up-front across our industry.

“Both of these guys take huge pride in their workmanship and are always up for the next challenge. They’re now inspiring others in our team to get amongst it and get their ticket too – helping us breed a positive culture,” said Brad.

Clint and Darji completed their qualification via Experience Recognition. This BCITO process recognises existing skills and experience. It’s perfect for those who have worked in the industry for a few years.
