The four who completed the course are: Tina Varano, Anna Burgess, Kirran Wilcoxen, and Odette Hunter, and I'd like to extend them my congratulations.
These four will receive a certificate of achievement, although I am not able to grant full accreditation as we are not a Registered Training Organisation.
I'd like to thank the women in the class for their focus, their interest and their keenness to gain the skills associated with chainsaw work. I'd also like to compliment them on their excellent attitude to the safety issues we raised and discussed during the course.
Classes will continue on Saturdays through June and July for those women who originally enrolled, and we will be scheduling further classes later in the year for those who continue to express their interest in the course.
