A COURSE for people interested in a career in the apple and cherry industry will be held at New Norfolk at the end of November. Carinya Education Park in Blair St will be the venue for the three-day short-course.

Conducted by TasTAFE, the course will be a combination of hands on practicals, class room theory and a field trip to a local orchard, covering four of the 15 units required for a Certificate 2 in Production Horticulture.

The units covered will be: support harvesting; canopy maintenance; workplace health and safety; and quality assurance. The same course will be conducted at the Sorell and Huon Valley Trade Training Centres.

Costing $49.90, the course is described as a starting point for a career in food production. Prospective students are recommended to talk to one of the teachers to confirm their eligibility for the course.

For more information contact Sherryn Bennett on 6165 6554 or the TasTAFE service centre on 1300 655 307.
