FINIA would like to congratulate the Butchulla Aboriginal Corporation’s Butchulla Land and Sea Rangers Trainees for recently completing their six-month Skilling Queenslanders for Work traineeships.
Our best wishes to Jymara Burns, Sharneeka Doyle, Chase Chapman and Dakota Broome who all completed Certificate 1 in Conservation and Land Management and to Raymond Burns and Tessa Waia who completed Certificate 1 in Business.
