NEWS: We have decided to not offer this Training any longer. The following information is provided as historical information.


 This training is ideally suited to people working in sustainability, community, creative and healing industries and was originally designed for those wanting to be involved in the delivery of Accredited Permaculture Training (APT). Our cutting edge approach to this sometimes challenging subject matter benefits people from all industries and walks of life.

Participants in previous courses have included Community Development Workers, Nurses, Art Therapists, Counselors, Social Workers, Trainers in Human Services, Project Managers, School Teachers, Chefs, Massage Therapists, Horticulturalists, Community and School Garden coordinators and many Permaculture Trainers. Some ‘mainstream industry’ professionals have also chosen to be participants.

The course is staged in three parts.

PART 1 and 2 are in the form of a nine day intensive where the focus is on Creative, Interactive Learning Methods within the context of covering all the essentials for gaining the TAA Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. Facilitation uses the Dynamic Groups Dynamic Learning Methodology. These trainings are held in a residential context if possible. PART 3 involves a series of take home assignments where support processes are put in place to ensure that participants complete the work in the required time frame which is three months after the course.


These courses are held annually at Crystal Waters Permaculture EcoVillage SE QLD and are also offered in others states during the year and by invitation.
