Indigenous Training on Country

SA Bushfire Solutions has a long and proud association working with Indigenous groups and communities throughout Australia to assist and develop Bushfire Mitigation Programs and provide hands-on training. We have conducted Indigenous Training on Country within the APY Lands, Pine Creek, Borroloola, Bulgul, Alice Springs and Darwin for the Central Land Council, Northern Land Council and various Indigenous Ranger groups.

Our training is tailored to the individual needs of the Community or Ranger groups and provides them with the appropriate skills and knowledge to undertake their own bushfire mitigation works to protect infrastructure, environment and cultural sites. It also allows them to trade on the Carbon Markets by undertaking early season prescribed burning providing another income source and additional employment.

We keep class sizes small to ensure adequate interaction with all students. The training is delivered on country utilising community resources and equipment. This ensures participants become familiar with their own equipment and can participate in a supportive environment surrounded by their peers and family. We provide a flexible and supportive learning environment and provide adequate opportunity for practical exercises including prescribed burning and four-wheel driving. This approach ensures a positive learning environment with increased active participation.
