Level 2 Primary Industries Practical Courses 2020

By Marco Troost

This year, the L2 Primary Industry class has been able to do two outside courses (despite the lockdown) and will shortly complete another. Fencing, Quad Bikes and soon Pest Control. 

The fencing course was run by the Northland Regional Council and was held over the course of two days at two different locations. In order to hone their skills the students did several hours of fencing practice at Otamatea High School.

Kevin Mitchell from Training Ventures ran the quad bike course over two days at the Maungaturoto Country Club. Students learned how to ride a quad safely on a variety of terrain in a variety of weather events. Thanks very much to the Maungaturoto Country Club for allowing us to use their facilities and also to Kyle from Maungaturoto Motorcycles for generously loaning us the use of a quad bike.

Through the two courses students were able to gain various credits and certificates.
