  • “CDU work well alongside us because they are happy to adjust their schedules around our busy program and work in with whatever we are doing on a day to day basis, whether it be in a stock camp overnight, cattle yards or out mustering for the day. We feel it is important to offer our staff the opportunity to be trained through CDU because it is a great way to keep our employees engaged in their job and to give them something they can take with them throughout their career”

    “Undertaking workplace training with Charles Darwin University has been a great way for me to gain recognised qualifications in Agriculture while still working on-station. The training has been negotiable to fit around my work schedules, I learnt a lot and the training staff are friendly, helpful and flexible. Having the formal qualifications to go with my practical experience really advances my career opportunities.”

  • “Whilst doing my Certificate II (AHC20110) in Agriculture as a workplace trainee with Charles Darwin University, I have been able to work on cattle stations and the training does not interrupt our job. We get to do some theory which helps us understand more about the industry I work in and why we do certain things in certain ways. The training staff are all very approachable and have been in our position before so they are easy to get along with and understand the long days we do. I also get to select my units with my trainer so that my course is tailored to my duties on stations.”

    -Victoria Fraser

  • “The best thing about competing my Certificate III (AHC30110) with Charles Darwin University, is that I could gain a qualification whilst I work. As I work for contractors and go to a lot of stations and have little time off I needed a course that could fit into my work schedule. The staff are flexible and come and visit us at different stations. I am enjoying learning some more background knowledge of the cattle industry and this qualification will help further my opportunities in the industry. I am also looking forward to completing the upcoming short course on preg-testing offered by the university.”
