Dan Wurm

I've been in the painting industry for 27 years, and helped over 200 painters get qualified and start businesses. NSW Trainer of the Year South Sydney 2015. Passionate about Net-Zero Homes and natural building materials. Love my cricket, tennis, and mad Wallabies supporter.

Andrew Albore

Andrew spent several years in hospitality and eventually got his start in the building industry as a painter and decorator. After achieving his trade qualifications as a painter and decorator he formed a passion for home renovations which led to a mature aged apprenticeship as a carpenter which Andrew studied alongside his Certificate IV in Building and Construction.

Andrew has always had a passion for imparting his knowledge to others and this led him to the next stage at his career, working as a Trainer and Assessor and Course Designer. As a Trainer and Assessor Andrew teaches Painting and Decorating, Carpentry and Building and is currently studying to obtain his Diploma of Leadership and Management.

Thu Pham

I started working with the BOT Team in 2019, and with no experience or exposure to the RTO world, the team opened my eyes to it all with their experiences. I manage and look after our accounts, invoices and the staff at our head office in Sydney. There’s never a boring time at BOT and you just keep learning every single day with them.

Outside of work, I am currently studying at university. It’s a completely different course to what I do at work, but I love a challenge and expanding my knowledge wherever I can. I have two dogs who I absolutely love, one big fluffy Samoyed and a small white Maltese x poodle.
