About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The purpose of this micro-credential is to provide the Forestry sector with skilled workers who can identify and meet the key elements required for the safety, quality, and environmental requirements of the job prescription for planting trees.
Due to the seasonal nature of planting work, this micro-credential will also support workers who are not in the role long enough to complete a full programme of study but can still get recognition for the skills and knowledge to help them gain employment for the following planting season. Similarly, workers in the pruning or thinning programmes may move to planting for the season and should be able to gain additional recognition for the additional skill set.
