We're bringing our practical, hands on safety training to a town near you.

Tocal College is going on the road to towns across NSW offering a week of accredited training focused on farm safety and fully funded to eligible participants.

Through 2019 we had stopovers at towns like Moree, Walgett, Coonamble, Boorowa, Barellan, Warren and Wollongbar. COVID-19 restrictions meant our 2020 and 2021 schedule was postponed, but we are now planning towns for 2022 so get in contact with us if you think your community could benefit!

Funded training

Most of this training is fully funded through the SafeWork NSW Quad Bike Safety Improvement Program, the NSW Drought Assistance Package, or the NSW Government AgSkilled program for people who work in the rice, horticulture, viticulture, cotton or grains industries.

The training is practical and hands on, designed to improve safety on farm.

What people are saying

"Having the training delivered on-farm with their fellow employees made the blokes a lot more comfortable. The trainers were excellent, really down to earth and with genuine work experience they could draw on to make the training relevant”  Walgett
