23 Certified In Grencase Boat Engine R&M

23 Certified In Grencase Boat Engine R&M

Twenty-three persons who last week graduated from the Australian Government sponsored, Grencase organized, engine Repair and Maintenance (R&M) eight-week program are being encouraged to utilize what they learned to the best of their ability.

Friday’s exercise saw the participants walking away with certificates of successful completion and a tool kit each as a starter towards their advancement.

The certificates, tool kits and special awards were handed out by Senator Norland Cox, Managing Director of Grencase, Selby Henry, head of the Fisheries Department, Junior McDonald, Brian Lendore and tutors Mr. Wallace McCleod and Mr. Desmond Joseph.

Cox praised the participants for grasping the opportunity to develop themselves in the areas of training, considering the high percentage of residents that depend on the sea for their livelihood and the number of people who use the seas for travel.

“This would have a positive impact on the sister isles’ fishermen and water taxi operators”, the senator told the closing ceremony at the Mermaid Beach Hotel conference room.

Noting that the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique congratulates the graduates, the senator reminded them of the need to fully embrace all they have learned towards the benefit of themselves and the sister isles in general.

Mr. Henry said that the challenges and even loss of lives due to engine failure made it imperative for them to have conducted such a program.  He added that the participants showed deep dedication towards learning and therefore he is confident that they would invest what they have learned into their practice.

Henry was high in praise to the fisheries officer, for guiding them through the process in locating those in need of the knowledge of engine repair and maintenance.
