TARATAHI Agricultural Training Centre has had an
enthusiastic response from trainees undertaking
a new General Farm Skills course at EIT's Taradale
"The Certifcate in General Farm Skills has proved
to be a popular training option for a wide variety of
people," says Kim Holden, Taratahi Regional Delivery
"We work with lifestyle farmers, people
wanting to make a career change, horticultural
workers, business operators as well as individuals just
wanting to get some skills behind them."
General Farm Skills course trainee Kaylene
Clarkson, a Hastings vineyard worker and now a
trustee of a whanau farm initially wanted to learn about
handling an ATV safely, but has valued the opportunity
to learn about safe handling of chainsaws as well as
understanding more about fencing.
"The course has taught me a lot of really basic stuff
that experienced farmers just 'know'."
This part time course is run over a 12 week period
and costs only $100. The course currently offers
training in health and safety, ATVs, tractors, fencing
and chainsaws. Courses are on-going throughout the
year and students must be 16 years or over.
Taratahi also delivers level 3 and level 4 full time
agricultural courses from EIT's Taradale campus.

cup). Although this probably didn t
adversely affect the result, we
thought readers waistlines may ben-
efit if we printed the corrected recipe
and here it is.
