Thirteen High Altitude Team (HAT ) participants successfully completed the 26-day Crew Leadership Training programme at the Nelspruit Training Academy on 27 September 2017.

Based in the Western Cape, Mpumalanga, Limpopo and the Eastern Cape, the newly appointed Crew Leaders were trained on invasive plant control, environmental first aid, dispatch protocol and transport management, among other aspects.

Addressing participants, HAT General Manager Dave Williams said he was impressed with the caliber of leaders the Training Academy continued to produce.

Williams said the Crew Leaders should, “take the baton and run with it. Go back to your teams and implement all that you have learnt here.”

He said he was immensely proud of the discipline HAT Crew Leaders conveyed and congratulated them on their new journey.
