Gain the qualification you need to take the next step in your conservation and land management career

This course is aimed at training supervisors and managers for the conservation and land management industry and builds on the knowledge and skills gained through previous studies and/or from industry experience.

It will provide you with high level technical skills in research, data collection, analysis, management planning and report writing and this qualification will assist you to gain employment as a supervisor or manager of staff and projects in the conservation, land management and environment industries.

All of the projects undertaken as part of the Diploma of Conservation and Land Management are undertaken in conjunction with local land management agencies and the data and reports produced by the students are used to inform land management decisions.
