The three per cent decrease is explained by the relatively higher retention of rangers who have completed Certificate IV, and Certificate IV was not delivered by the Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education (BIITE) in the second half of the year. In June 2018, 12 rangers tried to enrol for this qualification. Only two per cent of all training hours was dedicated to Certificate I level training, which comprised introductory workplace health and safety courses. As the ranger program continues to expand, equitable distribution of training resources is an increasing challenge. Several factors influence how much training different ranger groups complete. There was significant increase in training undertaken by the Warlpiri, Anangu Luritjiku and Anmatyerr groups compared with previous periods. This can be attributed to these groups having a relatively stable workforce and consistent employment of a group coordinator. Higher training participation rates also reflect higher ranger retention rates. Staff turnover places pressure on work programs and requires groups to focus on establishing good work routines before moving into training. This is why the relatively new Angas Downs and Tjakura ranger groups do less training. The Warlpiri, Muru-warinyi Ankkul, North Tanami and Anmatyerr ranger groups have benefited from their workforce stability and high senior ranger capacity. Better planning and logistical capacity has resulted in high training participation rates for these groups. The relatively high expense and other challenges of remote delivery models have limited training opportunities in very remote communities. This explains why the Kaltukatjara Rangers did less training than rangers in less remote groups. The CLC continues to improve training outcomes by working collaboratively with training providers who Figure 19. Ranger mentor activity: visits to ranger groups, 201718 Figure 20.
