Biosecurity micro-credential enrolments open now

17 September 2020

The Primary Industry Training Organisation (ITO), together with the horticulture industry and KVH has developed a biosecurity micro-credential (a short, focused piece of learning) to enhance industry capability.

The micro-credential content includes biosecurity principles, on-farm practices, and an assessment component. It is designed to give an individual an understanding of biosecurity; what risks are present on their orchard/farm; how to prioritise and manage them; asks how practices can be put in place or improved; and demonstrates how to implement, monitor and review a biosecurity plan.

This Level 5 NZQA qualification is free to you and is being delivered by UCOL on behalf of the Primary ITO. Upcoming courses are in Kerikeri (Friday 9 October), Tauranga (Tuesday 13 October), and Hastings (Monday 19 October).

If you’re interested in enrolling, please get in touch with the Primary ITO on 0800 20 80 20 to secure your spot.
