The training comprises a theory session, followed by a practical session where trainees learn how to inspect and clean a vehicle.
The course being offered to ECA members will include a field trip to ALP Street Reserve in Mt. Helena to look at different Dieback occurrence categories (infested, uninfested and uninterpretable). The course duration is between 4 hours and includes a PowerPoint presentation followed by a vehicle cleardown exercise and site visit (an additional 2-3 hours). At the end of the PowerPoint presentation, there is a short question and answer session, followed by the practical vehicle clean down exercise. On completion of the course attendees receive a Green Card with their name on it which is valid for three years.
