Envirotech Education is a Burleigh Heads business delivering vocational education and training (VET) qualifications to form a positive footprint across different disciplines and industries.
The company is committed to VET qualifications with a focus on sustainability and environmental management. These include the recently accredited first worldwide VET qualifications in Marine Habitat Conservation and Restoration.
Around the world, governments, financial institutions and non-government organisations are joining in the process of conserving and restoring ecosystems and habitats, especially marine ecosystems. However, the lack of practical vocational training creates a barrier to local communities fully participating in this effort.
The first worldwide VET qualifications in this field will qualify coastal communities, especially Aboriginal and Islander people and fisherpeople, to perform marine conservation and restoration jobs. This will cut the costs of such projects and provide local communities with practical courses designed to support local ecosystems, empowering them to take environmental initiatives into their own hands.
Envirotech exports to more than 60 countries. The company is currently targeting markets in Israel, the Philippines, South America, India and Africa.
