Diploma studies online offer flexibility

Enrol-now-diplomasTocal College is currently taking mid year enrolments for their two online Diploma courses in Agriculture and Conservation & Land Management. Course Supervisor of the CLM Diploma, Mr David Brouwer explains: "These Diplomas are available by external studies only, so students don't need to attend classes or residentials. So the course is extremely flexible, and students can work at their own pace."

Students of each will graduate with a Diploma of Agriculture or a Diploma of Conservation and Land Management. Both courses are nationally-recognised and accredited qualifications.

The courses are especially designed for landholders, farmers, graziers, land managers, bush regenerators, landcare workers, weeds officers and students of environmental management.

Mr Brouwer went on to say, "Although the courses are based at Tocal, they are ideally suited to students in any locality across Australia, because they can study land management issues right in their own backyard. Their own farm or a community project area becomes their place of study."

"The courses are made up of a number of assignments or projects, usually conducted over a two year period. Students can also choose from a range of electives for their course work."

A feature of the new courses is that they provide Skills Recognition for those who are working in agriculture or land management already, and who can provide evidence of existing skills and knowledge.

Further details on the courses, including course handbooks and enrolment forms are available from the Tocal College website or phone 1800 025520.
