Education and Training

Education and Training

plant in handAustralia has a critical shortage of plant biosecurity specialists. In order to train the next generation of biosecurity experts, education and training in the PBCRC are embedded throughout our Research Programs.

Goals

  • The PBCRC will train at least 18 PhD candidates. As in the case of the CRCNPB, each PhD candidate will have supervisors from academia as well as industry or government.

  • We will deliver new online training modules in pest diagnostics and provide Vocational Education and Training (VET) learning and teaching materials in plant biosecurity to registered training organisations (RTOs) and secondary schools.
