Existing sports turf management qualifications and units of competency are being reviewed as part of a new project that aims to bring them up to date with current industry practices, technologies, equipment and advances in turf agronomy.
Draft qualifications and units will be available for your consideration and feedback in late October, on the Skills Impact website. You can register now for a face-to-face consultation workshop during this time, to provide feedback on the drafts in person.
Seven workshops are planned across states and territories, with two webinars for those unable to attend in person. Please feel free to register for a workshop near you or a webinar by visiting the project page, linked below.
