Rural Skills Australia and the WA Farmers Federation are offering a tractor-driving course to address a demand for this year’s broad acre cropping program.
The organisations say there is a severe shortage of skilled farm workers, and that employment prospects for anyone with some appropriate skills, a good attitude, and a willingness to live in regional Australia are very good.
A Tractor Driving for Seeding Course, April 7 to April 11 at the Cunderdin Agricultural College, will provide nationally accredited training through the CY O'Connor College of TAFE.
Advice on employment opportunities, and information on assistance offered through employment agencies, will also be offered.
Total cost includes accommodation and meals, and participants may be eligible for funding under an employment training program.
Further information is available from Kerrie Goff at CY O'Connor College of TAFE on 1800 627 256, and from Rural Skills Australia WA representative Fred Chambers, on 9359 4000 or 0409 884 574.
