Trevor Clark - Forestry

Studying forestry at NorthTec has widened career horizons for Trevor. He’s pleased to have been able to take a break from being in the kitchen as a chef, and the forestry course ticked all the boxes for him.

“It was great to get outside. The chainsaw skills and many different aspects of the forestry industry covered, such as safety, were all good. There’s so much to learn. We watched how logging crews operated, how trees were felled, how to watch for hazards, and how to work in the bush as a team.”

Trevor is back in the kitchen now for the time being, but loves having an outdoor work option up his sleeve, and one that can take him overseas.

“A job in forestry is a job for the future. The course was really worth doing - I enjoyed it.”
