Predicted increase in demand for wool classers in Australia
Monday, 22 August, 2011 - 11:04

The Australian wool exchange CEO, Mark Grave, is predicting a shortage in wool classers on the back of the resurgence in the wool industry.

Have a look at the following article, and think about the possibilities to get yourself into a position to take advantage of the predicted opportunities.

Tectra's Certificate in Wool Technology (Classing) qualification is recognised in Australia and provides an entry into a classing job both here in New Zealand and across the Tasman.
 

Custom training for your business
Monday, 22 August, 2011 - 10:22

Tectra will provide 'Contractor Specific' training courses on demand. So if you want to have some of your staff trained at a time that suits you, contact Tectra, and we'll arrange a programme to suit.
The beauty of contractor specific courses are that you get to arrange the timing of the training, and Tectra will also provide in-shed follow-up at times that suit you to ensure that what has been learnt on course is carried through onto the job.
We have had a lot of positive feedback from farmers who have noticed the benefit training has on the quality of the job. You can arrange a course directly through your Tectra Regional Manager, or you can call our National Operations Manager (Gavin Rowland).
