It’s the 4th year of the Certificate III in Conservation and Ecosystem Management for First Nations/Traditional Owners (AHC31420, previously known as the Cert III in Conservation and Land Management) and we are excited to extend an offer for you to join the course.
We are looking for expressions of interest so please let us know if you are interested or, send this link to a friend.
The course has been designed specifically for Traditional Owners/Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to gain skills to work on country.
The course will provide accredited training in skills such as fire and water management, weed control, revegetation, construction, chainsaw usage, occupational, health and safety and cultural studies.
This is a predominantly in-field course with many Elders and local experts teaching subjects. In previous years we have been able to complete cultural burns on Country and build and grow bush food gardens. View a video describing the course here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8VAEj7KSFk
