Train with us
SA Riverland, 28th April - 5th May 2018
We are currently accepting registrations of interest for our next scheduled training program, which will be run at Calperum Station, in the South Australian Riverland. Participants will need to arrive on Sunday 28th April (either at the venue in near Renmark directly, or meet the team in Adelaide at 2 pm and travel in convoy). Theory lectures will commence 8:30 am Monday 29th April.
A full schedule will be released in February 2019.
This is an intensive week long training programme, with 1 - 2 days of theory lectures, and 5 days of hands-on field training covering all aspects of our AusPlots protocols. All trainers and participants will spend the week together, in basic accommodation (air-conditioned bunkhouse and camp sites), and all meals and catering will be provided.
Fee: $350 per person (subject to variation), to cover accommodation, food, catering and travel to/from Adelaide. Participants will need to arrange their own travel to Adelaide (or Renmark/Calperum directly).
Participants will be expected to have a keen interest in understanding survey methods and techniques. The theory lectures will be in-depth explaining the background to our methods. All participants will receive a printed copy of the updated AusPlots protocols manual. Some reading before the training commences will be beneficial. The training caters for a wide audience with varying skills and level experience, and is suitable for tertiary students, as well as experienced researchers wanting to understand our field collection methods.
Please complete this brief survey to register your interest in the upcoming training and to receive further updates. A full schedule will be released in February, and information to assist planning and logistics will follow.
We hope to have more details available soon! Please email email@example.com to discuss the training further.
