Conservation and Land Management Training Academy
The Forest Guardians Academy was established in 2013 to fulfil ARF’s charter of conservation education. The Academy teaches modules linked the Certificate II and III in Conservation and Land Management through the Australian Agricultural College Corporation.
Trainees experience considerable one on one instruction in a real workplace and gain many hours experience on ARF properties undergoing rehabilitation.
In 2014, the first 14 week program commenced at the Foundation’s remote training facility in the Daintree with eight Indigenous trainees participating through an employment program sponsored by Choice Australia Management.
