24 trainers from across Australia attended the Biosecurity Emergency Response Training Australia (BERTA) Workshop in Adelaide in late May. The week saw the introduction of the BERTA Communities of Practice as well as the Train the Trainer workshop, which officially launched the BERTA training materials. This week was the culmination of two years of collaboration involving the Commonwealth, all states and territories, Tocal College, Animal Health Australia and Plant Health Australia – a fabulous collective effort!
The workshop provided the opportunity for trainers to become formally qualified, discuss ways they can implement the training in their own jurisdictions, develop solutions to the challenges of training in the biosecurity sector in Australia, and build on the already strong relationships established throughout the two years of project development.
