Traineeship numbers over the past few months have increased significantly with the majority being taken up by the salmon industry. Further increases are predicted over the coming year as the industry continues to go from strength to strength.
SMT have endeavoured to put on more courses where demand dictates, however if you’re finding it difficult to enrol into a specific course we ask that you contact SMT directly as we are constantly adding new courses to the course calendar and will continue to do so throughout the year.
Speaking of traineeships, a special mention has to go to one of our star trainers Sam Evenhuis who recently took control over our Certificate III Shellfish Husbandry course. Sam was one of the first people to undertake the Certificate III in Aquaculture with SMT well over a decade ago, it’s rewarding to see him complete the journey from student to teacher.
