The TERN Surveillance Field Method Training provides hands-on experience to scientifically standardised, nationally accepted ecological monitoring methods and techniques.  

Download the programme.

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, 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.

All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion. There are no formal assessment components.

The University of Adelaide higher degree students may record 40 hours of Career and Research Skills Training (CaRST) (Domain A: Knowledge and intellectual abilities).
