Wool courses return

28 Jun, 2000 11:06 AM

THE Rural Industries Skills Training (RIST) group has scheduled a new series of Advanced Wool Classing Certificate courses, following its successful inaugural WA series last spring. Respected wool consultant Dr Paul Swan and elite wool classer Andy Waugh will head up the series of three, two-day courses, in Broomehill, Williams and Moora this week and next week. The AWCC course is regarded as a "must do" for both wool classers and growers who are looking to give their wool clip a marketing edge. The course incorporates a combination of theory and practical work designed to give growers and classers the necessary skills to quickly and accurately identify wools that offer superior processing attributes. For participants wishing to take their skills through to certificate stage, they will be required to submit a clip for inspection by RIST inspectors soon after the course completion. Already, a number of wool classers and commercial wool growers who participated in this course when staged in southern regions last spring, have gone on to apply these skills in shearing sheds around the state. The series commenced at Woodyarrup, was at Broomehill on Monday and Tuesday, and then moves to the Rintoul family's Auburn Valley property at Williams today and tomorrow and then to Jeremy and Sue Lefroy's property Colvin, near Moora, on July 3 and 4. The courses are GST exclusive (RIST is an accredited training provider) and priced at $280/head inclusive of manuals and lunch both days. Limited positions are available at each venue and bookings should be directed to Esther Price Promotions on 9525 2663 or epp@highway1.com.au
