- Enrolment is now open and course will commence in July 2021
Charles Sturt University is now taking enrolments for the new Graduate Certificate in Fish Conservation and Management.
Course Director in the Charles Sturt Faculty of Science Mr Matt Hunt said the course is targeted at recreational fishers who wish to upskill and also those who work in fisheries research and management seeking a specialisation.
“This will be a hands-on course that will deliver practical skills, grounded in the latest theory and advances in fisheries knowledge,” he said.
“The course will be taught by combining the skills of Charles Sturt University academics and guest practitioners who are actively working in the fisheries field.
“We have a strong interest from international students so we will be including study material using relevant overseas examples which can be applied locally.”
Australian Recreational Fishing Foundation Manager Mr Adam Martin congratulated the University and ILWS for developing this opportunity for Australia’s recreational fishing community.
“Recreational fisheries need more ways to gain formal qualifications like this to keep them inspired and to provide a platform where their value and experience is recognised,” Mr Martin said.
“I believe it will also pave the way for the next generation of leaders and managers in the future co-management of this precious resource.”
Enrolments for Charles Sturt’s Graduate Certificate in Fish Conservation and Management are now open and the course will commence in July 2021.
Students can complete the course online or on-campus over six months (full-time) or 12 months (part-time) with residential schools to be held at Charles Sturt in Albury-Wodonga.
