Southern Wood Council Regional Graduation

When: Friday May 23rd, 2014
Where: Rosebank Lodge Hotel, Balclutha

The Southern Wood Council has confirmed Friday the 23rd of May for its regional graduation of local forestry trainees and apprentices. Completing a National Certificate or apprenticeship is a real achievement for trainees and for those who mentor and support them. It requires hard work, dedication and a strong commitment to learning and skill development in the industry. This is a much anticipated event and we hope that those of you in the Southland forestry region can join us for a night of celebration. Invitations to the event are being sent shortly, but in the meantime you can register your interest by contacting Phil Williams of Competenz directly on 027 438 8096 or
