To help you grow your extension and technical skills, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) is offering subsidies for those working in the Reef catchments to cover the registration cost of approved courses. You (or your employer) will still need to cover your salary, travel and accommodation.
Register your interest in receiving a subsidy for attending a suitable reef-related training activity by completing a simple form, telling DAF how your attendance will contribute to improving the water quality of the Great Barrier Reef.
Once you’ve successfully completed the training, email DAF the Certificate of completion with your contact details, and they’ll happily reimburse 50% of the registration cost.
Over the next few months you complete the workshop follow-up activities to apply your learning in your workplace.
Then submit a short report (less than 500 words) to DAF detailing how you’ve applied your new learning in your workplace and how it contributes to improving the water quality of the Great Barrier Reef, and they’ll reimburse the other 50% of the registration cost.
