Permaculture International Ltd is seeking ways to better serve its members,
following the Permaculture Educator and Practitioner's Gathering in
November.

IDENTIFYING NEEDS A PART OF REFORMING PERMACULTURE TRAINING
This follows the decision taken at the gathering to seek formal
accreditation, with the Australian national training authority, for a
permaculture course. The Certificate Four level course will be longer and
far more thorough than the existing Permaculture Design Course and will be
recognised as vocational training.

The current Permaculture Design Course is not recognised as vocational
training as it is not formatted as such with learning objectives, identified
competencies and standards.

The process of accreditation could take up  to two years (see
www.nor.com.au/environment/perma - click 'Professional direction for
permaculture education' for full report).


PERMACULTURE INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION
Part of the process includes the establishment of a permaculture industry
association and Permaculture International is seeking comments from members
about their needs in practicing permaculture design (see
www.nor.com.au/environment/perma and click 'What are your needs?')

If current Permaculture International members could take a look at the web
page and respond via the email address advertised, it would  move  this
process forward and identify what people see as needs in the current
economic/  social/  political climate.

Thanks for your assistance.
