Hawkesbury TAFE has a new teacher in Erin Stevens .Erin is the instergator of the Australian Farriers Conference recently held in Queensland . We wish him all the best with the appointment. Amando Djuric will also make a return to the Hawkesbury TAFE in coming weeks as soon as his Cert IV is updated and will be a welcome addition to the course.
The new Cert IV in farriery should commence in 2020 . The course has a lot more theory in anatomy and business study ,students will have work very hard to complete it This will mean a lot more study time which they will not be used to however it is necessary to bring the level of the trade up to a Cert IV qualification . There will be many issues to get through as all new courses can present problems , we encourage apprentices employers in the Sydney and provincial areas to support this course.
We are still actively pursuing the servicing of race and trial meetings in country areas. The association needs to service these venues in order to maintain a steady income and to keep membership free to tradesmen in NSW into the future and beyond.
It is with great sadness to hear of the passing of Dennis O`Brian from Glenn Davis . Dennis worked at Canterbury race course for many years and was the son of David O`Brian also a tradesmen. Dennis was 60 yrs old and breifly fought melanoma cancer before he passed away. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.He truely was one of the great characters of the trade in his time.
