Denis Valjak has recently joined the team at QTS as our new Mining, Construction and Safety Trainer and Assessor.  Denis has worked in a variety of jobs and industries within the Bowen Basin and our very own Mackay District and has gained invaluable experience within his mining career, as a result of his work in the gold and coal mining industries, as well as the coal ports.
