Wool harvesting

Shearing in action

Kiwi shearers, wool handlers and pressers have long been known as the best in the world. 

Tectra is New Zealand's largest provider of wool harvesting training, and our programmes ensure our people have the skills they need to continue that reputation long into the future.

Enrolling in Tectra's wool harvesting training programmes will provide you with a pathway to achieve a national qualification. The mixture of short courses and hands on experience makes it certain you will achieve your goals.

As a registered private training establishment we work with both educational organisations and the industry to ensure our training is always current and relevant to the wool shed.

Tectra provides the full range of training programmes - from training for those new to the industry to advanced courses for people who have been working in the wool shed for a number of years. We help everyone improve their skills and technique.

All our training instructors started as shearers, wool handlers or pressers and our courses are based on industry knowledge and sound educational principles. 

Tectra is also proud to be part of the Modern Apprenticeship programme.

So if you are looking to improve your skills in shearing, wool handling or pressing give us a call on 0800 496 657 or contact one of our regional training coordinators.

Disclaimer: Tectra reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any course if there are insufficient trainees registered for that course.
