Certificate 2 in Forest Growing and Management
Sydney DRT is investigating whether to run a Certificate 2 in Forest Growing and Management and we need to know if there is enough interest to justify the amount of work to get this program off the ground.
There are currently no set dates or locations but we do anticipate it would be held over a 12 month period. There would potentially be week blocks at the training provider followed by Service Projects or Operational Deployments to consolidate. (Any travel, accommodation or food would be at your own expense unless provided as part of an operational deployment)
This would be a significant amount of effort on your part and ours to make happen but you would end up with a recognised qualification that could assist with employment.
The competencies currently being considered are, although there is scope to make minor changes to the electives:
FWPCOR2201 Work effectively in the forest and forest products industry
FWPCOR2202 Communicate and interact effectively in the workplace
FWPCOR2203 Follow environmental care procedures
FWPCOR2204 Follow fire prevention procedures
FWPCOR2205 Follow WHS policies and procedures
HLTAID003 Provide first aid
AHCINF202 Install, maintain and repair farm fencing
FWPCOT2237 Maintain chainsaws
FWPCOT2239 Trim and cut felled trees
FWPCOT2236 Fall trees manually (basic)
FWPFGM3212 Fall Trees Manually (Intermediate)
FWPCOT3259 Operate a four wheel drive on unsealed roads
FWPCOT2233 Navigate in Forest Areas
