Resource recovery training now available

We’re extremely pleased to announce the launch of our Resource Recovery Training programmes, developed and delivered with the support of Auckland Council.

The aim of the programme is to provide relevant skills and knowledge required to safely and effectively work at a community resource recovery centre. There will be two courses on offer – a Certificate in Resource Recovery Operations and a Certificate in Resource Recovery Management.

Our first two-day Resource Recovery Operations training course will be happening in Auckland on November 20-21st. For more information on the Certificate in Resource Recovery Operations download the programme summary here.

The course will cover the basics of machinery, equipment, processing, health & safety and zero waste concepts. It is suitable for those currently employed in the sector, or those interested in being employed in the sector.

The cost is $150 excl GST per attendee for Auckland participants and $550 excl GST per attendee for those people coming from outside of Aucklan.

If this seems like a great deal for Aucklanders, it is. We will be using some of our Auckland Council funding to offer subsidies to Auckland groups, in support of the building of a great Auckland Resource Recovery Network. For those of you outside of Auckland we would be interested in getting a similar thing happening with other councils so do get in touch if this is something you’d be interested in working with us on.
