Our Mission, Vision and Values
PTS Training Academy’s story began over 20 years ago. In 1990, our founders, Byron Thomas Snr. and Matthew Joyce, started their journey towards forming learning opportunities nationwide for everyone. They developed a strong passion for creating these opportunities for people who are keen to learn and gain new skills, allowing them to succeed in their professional life.
When working within the rail industry, Byron and Matt identified a shortfall in skilled workers due to the lack of suitable training available for people from all backgrounds. They realised they had a chance to change this.
Thus, in 2012, a new training centre was born.
Personal Track Safety, now known as PTS Training Academy, was established, operating nationwide to provide training courses, apprenticeships and traineeships for everyone. Delivering consistently with precision, purpose and passion, we provide our partners, employers and learners with high quality training solutions.
The foundations and aspirations of our company remain true to those established by Byron and Matt, and their energy continues to be our inspiration. Our drive and innovative culture ensure that we deliver consistently, providing quality and assurance – today and in the future.
