Develop your skills and knowledge of Indigenous land management as well as lands, parks and wildlife or natural area restoration, and work in a sector that’s experiencing real growth.

- Indigenous culture and practices
- Weeds and pest controls

You can also continue onto study the Certificate IV in Conservation and Land Management.

At TAFE NSW we understand that not everyone studies the same way, so we’ve developed a range of study options for this course, from full-time on campus to evening classes and a variety of flexible options.

To complete this course you need have access to bushland sites in your local area in order to complete the required practical aspects for most course units. You can achieve this by being employed in the industry, or by volunteering with a local landcare or bushcare group, or other similar volunteer group (eg: national parks) in your area.

To ensure you leave us with the most up to date qualification...

If during or after your enrolment, the course in which you are enrolled is updated in line with national industry standards, the Institute reserves the right to transition you into an alternate course. If this becomes necessary, the Institute will advise you of the change and the arrangements which will be available for you to complete your alternate course.

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.
