Subsequent to a number of discussions between NZPFU trainer and training reps, Norm Gilroy, Greg Lee and James Hall and NTC Management, some members of the Training Leadership Team and NTC staff, FENZ have agreed to relax the original instructions of allowing trainers who stay for a continual 8 weeks before they have the opportunity of utilising accommodation with self-catering OR hotel accommodation down to 8 weeks per year, not 8 continual weeks as currently being used. Self-catering accommodation is also quite a bit more expensive than the costs offered by the hotels, but FENZ’s focus is not on money, but more about staff welfare and comfort.

This means that the majority of regional trainers and those regular trainers attending NTC in Rotorua will be offered a choice of either a self-catering unit or to stay at the hotel with the course attendees. FENZ will also meet with the hotel management and request that any trainers/instructors staying at a hotel will be accommodated away from the course attendees where ever possible. Training Business Services will work on monitoring trainer availability to courses at NTC to monitor the 8 weeks use per year
