Masterclasser is one of a series of professional development initiatives offered by AWEX to professional Australian wool classers.

Masterclasser is a training opportunity for professional wool classers that aspire to deliver high quality services. This course concentrates on developing the wool classer’s people management skills and technical confidence. In the case of the latter this is achieved by deepening their technical understanding of wool preparation and hearing first hand the requirements and perspective of entities that rely on the wool classer's performance (e.g. owner/contractor/warehouse/buyer/processor).
