Last chance for free NZQA biosecurity course
4 April 2019

If you’re in Pukekohe, this is your last chance to attend a free biosecurity micro-credential course. Developed by the Primary ITO and industry, it aims to enhance industry biosecurity capability, and covers biosecurity principles, on-farm practices, and an assessment component.

Designed for grower owner-operators and supervisors/managers, the NZQA Level 5 course will give you an understanding of biosecurity, risks present on your orchard, how to prioritise and manage them, and how these practices can be put in place or improved.  

As the programme is still being tested with industry groups there is no cost for participating, all materials and catering will be provided.  Participants agree to take part in the course, complete the assessment afterwards, and provide feedback.

The final pilot course will take place in Pukekohe next Monday, 8 April. As there are limited places, please contact Anna Rathé at Horticulture New Zealand to secure your place.
