NSW - Biobanking Assessors Training Accreditation Required

New South Wales Department of Environment and Climate Change is running a 4-day Assessors Course for the new Biobanking scheme. Anyone who wishes to apply the assessment methodology will be required to attend the course.

See http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/biobanking/assessorscourse.htm

The course fee is $1850 (ex-GST) including accreditation or $1500 (ex-GST) without accreditation per person. There will be a maximum of twelve places at each training course.

Note, there is a minimum standard for accreditation. To gain accreditation, course participants will need documentation to prove they have:
  • relevant tertiary qualifications in natural sciences (or equivalent);
  • a minimum of three years experience in flora and/or fauna survey; or
  • five years experience if the applicant has no tertiary qualifications in natural sciences (or equivalent); and
  • two written statements from referees who can vouch for the applicants skills, experience and professional conduct.
DECC will determine if the applicant meets the criteria for accreditation, and if so, issue an accreditation certificate to the applicant (including Assessor Accreditation Number).

Expressions of interest for the course can be made by completing this form.
