Study Mode

This course highlights the importance of classroom based learning and practical field based work.

Students will develop an understanding of environmental issues and work closely with industry as part of annual works programs through weekly field trips.

Throughout this course, you will gain experience in planning and implementing a range of conservation and land management projects including mapping and biodiversity projects, inspection and monitoring cultural places, re-vegetation projects, plant identification, pest plant and animal management, developing interpretive activities, fauna management, and flora and fauna identification.

All of our projects are run jointly with public land management agencies, which may include Mornington Peninsula Shire, Kingston City Council, Parks Victoria, and the National Trust of Victoria.

This course provides you with a thorough understanding of environmental science, its specialised skills, and knowledge in general land management.

As an integral part of the course you will be provided with a broad base of technical and practical skills in field work through on site training.

In agreement with Parks Victoria and local councils, you will be given the opportunity to train on site in natural area restoration programs.

This will not only improve the park's environmental values, but also assist you in your professional development, leading towards a career as a land manager.

After completing this course you will be qualified to undertake a range of field and technical roles for government or agencies such as the Department of Sustainability and Environment, Parks Victoria, local councils and private sector agencies.
