Course details

People who are successful in this industry have:

  • Affinity with native animals and the natural world
  • Great communication skills
  • Analytical way of thinking
  • Ability to work in teams and in solitary, and in remote conditions

Assessments provide a great way for you to demonstrate what you've learned so far and identify what needs further development.

In this very hands-on and practical course, you will undertake:

  • Practical assessments in simulated and real-life workplace settings
  • Written assessments such as quizzes, short answer questions, assignments and case studies
  • Onsite assessments performing conservation and land management works

The Certificate II is a baseline qualification that provides no exposure to simulated or real world. It does cover your foundational skills and sets you up for success in the Certificate III.

This course, the Certificate III, is where you will gain all your underpinning experience in site analysis, weed management, map reading, and plant and fauna identification skills. It provides you with the opportunity to apply what you are learning within the workplace or a simulated environment. You will practice your skills at an intermediate level.

The Certificate IV course does not cover the underpinning experience gained in the Certificate III. This course focuses on supervisory skills to oversee a team of conservation and land management workers. You do need to complete the Certificate III before enrolling into the Certificate IV or be able to demonstrate equivalent skills and knowledge.

More than 50% of this course is delivered in the field with some excursions to industry organisations.

You will gain hands-on skills in identifying native plants, pests and animals. You will learn to apply solutions to revegetation and natural area restoration, and the control of weeds.

You will work on a range of real world projects, including:

  • Conducting a site inspection to safely assess site status and rehabilitation needs, as necessary
  • Applying chemical spray to manage or control weeds
  • The implementation of revegetation works

TAFE NSW offers you a variety of study environments to enhance your learning and employability.

Some of your practical activities will be conducted in a simulated environment while others you will undertake on a real site. Your theoretical course work will take place in our TAFE NSW campus classrooms.

The United Nations has declared this to be the Decade of Ecosystem Restoration. Land degradation is negatively impacting at least 3.2 billion people and significant loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.

The demand for expertise in managing, protecting and restoring the natural environment is growing, providing a range of career options.

The United Nations has declared the decade up to 2030 to be the Decade of Ecosystem Restoration. Land degradation is negatively impacting at least 3.2 billion people and costing over 10 per cent of the annual global gross product in loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.

Reversing degradation of land (and marine) ecosystems can provide more than one-third of the climate change mitigation required by 2030 to remain below a 2C increase in average global temperatures. At the same time, we can conserve biodiversity, increase food and water security, and help achieve the sustainable development goals.
