First Line Management Training for Fisheries

Applications are invited for scholarships for the Certificate IV in First Line Management (FLM) contextualised for fisheries.

FFA is committed to the capacity development of our Members and ensuring, where possible, the training delivered is internationally recognised and provides our Officers with certificates of qualification.

Commencing on March 22, 2021, successful applicants will enrol with the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) in New Zealand. This is an online, one-year, study program consisting of four  courses, each course is 10 weeks in length:

  • Effective Team Leadership
  • Achieving Team Objectives

With COVID19 affecting National Observer Programs, the Secretariat considers this, to be an opportune time for National Observer Coordinators, PIRFO Trainers and PIRFO Trainee Trainers to develop their skills in leadership, education and motivation. However, the course is also open to fisheries officers that hold a supervisory or leading role.
