    ABOUT THE COURSE

    Our Certificate IV course is designed for people  who would like to improve their conservation and land management skills. There are no prerequisites.



    You have up to one and a half years to complete this course in a self paced online format.  Your learning time includes not only the time you spend working on the course materials, but also your time for reflection and thinking about what you have learned as you go about your normal activities.  We estimate the total learning time may be up to 20 hours per week for some students.  Of course, this will vary according to your existing skills and knowledge.



    RuralBiz Training (RTO Code 90782) is responsible for ensuring compliance of all training and assessment.
