Dreamworld launches new Training Academy to support staff career progression

Dreamworld launches new Training Academy to support staff career progression
March 21, 2019

As part of Ardent Leisure’s ongoing commitment to be a leader in all aspects of theme park operations and safety, Dreamworld has established a Training Academy to deliver continued learning and development opportunities to its 1000-plus team members.

The Dreamworld Training Academy will partner with local businesses to integrate its nationally accredited training programs in tourism, hospitality, leadership, health and safety and role specific training including ride operations.

These training opportunities will support career progression across all areas of the business by developing employee career pathways.

Dreamworld Chief Executive, John Osborne said the company is committed to the ongoing development of every team member to ensure they reach their full potential, advising "our team members are our most valuable resource, therefore it’s important for us to ensure they have the skills needed to succeed in their career at Australia’s biggest theme park.

“The Training Academy has been established to take our team to the next level."

With the Academy to feature training programs for ride operators and loaders, which will continue to include nationally accredited units of competency to ensure they have the skillset needed for these specific roles, Osborne added "it is proof that Dreamworld’s commitment to being a global leader in theme park operations and safety is stronger than ever, and shows how serious we are about the safety of our guests and team members."
