Completed the postgraduate certificate in 2011

"The content of this course really appealed to me, as it brought together and formalised the areas of climate change and primary production – something that is not offered elsewhere.

"In my role with the North Central CMA I need to be abreast of government policy in the areas of environment and production, and to be able to make it relevant to landholders. This course is giving me the confidence to do this and to also have an informed debate with climate policy makers. I have already put this into practice by providing a response on behalf of my CMA to the climate change considerations within the Guide to the Murray Darling Basin Plan.

"The design of the course has meant that I can directly apply the content of the course to my work related scenarios. My hope from this course is to be able to assist my CMA participate in the Government's proposed Carbon Farming Initiative and to be able to take part in the ongoing discussions around climate change, climate variability and primary production."
