The SBINZ received several emails this year with requests for funding towards exams, so we decided to use some of our Development Fund in this area. Rhys Jones was one such person who applied for some help towards his Trainers Cert workshop, and the committee gave him his workshop for free. Rhys has been an instructor for quite a few years and took his Trainers workshop and exam a few years ago but was unsuccessful at the time. After taking the workshop again this year Rhys passed his exam last week which was fantastic to see, so congrats to Rhys! And we will be putting more details about funding on the website for next year, so if anyone needs help towards Level Three or Trainers Cert exams then please email us. If the committee sees it as a worthwhile investment then you could be as lucky as Rhys!
