As part of my Qualifications in Permaculture I have to meticulously record all the details of the work that I do. The course is competency based and differs from the old “listen – study – exams” model.
We are briefed on an actual project, shown an example and do the work. This way we gain actual practical experience and are able to assessed on the spot.

For this bush experience system to gel with the existing structure, the course is auspiced by a Registered Training Organization / TAFE. The facilitator needs to have comprehensive records so that they can present evidence to them in case of an audit.

For my own integration I am going to rewrite my notes, include any photos i’ve taken and publish them online here.

An example of Activity Based Training is Composting.

You can find it in the gardening category along the top.
