Who runs ATV/quad training in the Chch area and expected cost? Found one at McLeans Island but awaiting further info. It's for someone else. Any others in the region?

If you're thinking of the trade academy, I heard a rumour that they're going through a bit of a hard time at the moment and financially not doing so well...

May not get a reply from them...

On the other hand, the rumour could be completely wrong!

What is the course needed for??? If the person has never used a quad before, well its possibly a useful activity. If however its for someone who is well versed in operating a quad, but a potential employer wants one, thats a cop out, as there are many more recognised (and legal) ways of assessing competence than waving a certificate in front of someone.

It should be that you only get a certificate waved in front of you if you have proven competence. Not always the case though, as you are suggesting.
