Finally, the Onerwal Local Aboriginal Land Council, working in partnership with NSW TAFE and other government organisations, has kicked off our much-anticipated training course in Indigenous Land Management Certificate III.
The course started on Thursday, May 2 at Yass TAFE Campus. The course is two days a week for 12 months.
It is not too late to enrol. So, if you're interested in Indigenous Land Management Practices please attend the TAFE campus and begin the course with a great bunch of people who love working in the great outdoors.
Indigenous Conservation and Land Management Certificate III will provide an opportunity to reconnect to country, culture and heritage.
The training will help develop skills and knowledge of Indigenous land management, as well as lands, parks and wildlife, or natural area restoration, and further build the capacity of the community and individuals to gain future employment opportunities.
The students will learn about safe and environmentally sustainable work practices, as well as other skills in areas such as Indigenous culture and practices, weeds and pest controls, chemical use, machinery operation and maintenance, and parks maintenance and industry work practices.
During the course, our major projects will be the conservation and management of Oak Hill and an Onerwal LALC property on Wargeila Road, Rye Park. Onewal LALC encourages people from all backgrounds enroll and join our community's journey in learning.
