As some of you may know, one of the first things the Defence Minister did when he took over the portfolio was approve a proposal to provide Defence funded motorcycle skills training as a way of reducing the losses associated with Defence members having accidents. Obviously helping people avoid fatal crashes is the biggest aspect of this but the other big aspect is that many injuries that wouldn't otherwise terminate a person's employment will cause immediate discharge from the military due to the physical standards required. Considering the military can't attract and retain enough people these days and the $1.9mil seems like a good investment. Well I have finally managed to get myself on one of the funded courses Mon/Tue next week. It is the Stay Upright Advanced course. And the real beauty of this..........it is considered DUTY!!! So I'm actually at work while running around Oran Park. Thank you Brendan!!!
