Accredited Permaculture Training is up and running in Western Australia, through Skills Strategies International. The first CIII was delivered by Ross Mars last year, and this has expanded to another CIII and the first Diploma this year. During last year’s CIII course, students also undertook AHCPER321 (Training small groups) and were able to achieve the Permaculture Skills Set. This qualification was the first time it was successfully offered in Australia.
One student during that course is now delivering CII Permaculture at Bold Park School. Yet another first for WA!
Currently three people are helping deliver the CIII and Diploma this year, with the aim of being more involved in the future.
