Bryan Gould Workshop Bundle

Are you looking for training opportunities for you or your staff in 2023 that cover a range of topics? We have the solution!

The QAA has partnered with experienced trainer Bryan Gould to offer a number of workshops in 2023 and early 2024 and are offering a discounted rate for booking multiple workshops.

  • Book 3 workshops, get a 5% discount

The workshops cover a range of topics to suit all levels but we recognise that not all workshops will apply to each individual person/role within a business. That’s why we’re allowing businesses to book a bundle rate but send different staff to each workshop. This also means you don’t lose out if an employee’s situation changes, you simply send someone else. We will confirm individual attendee names closer to each workshop date. 


The Workshops

He has extensive experience in commercial tree care, arboreta and collection curation, municipal urban forest management and AQF L3/4/5/6 arboriculture education.

Education Survey – Skills Gap

Do you believe there is a skills gap in the Queensland arborist industry?

As a Not for Profit incorporated association representing arborists in Queensland and Northern New South Wales, our mission is to provide support and guidance to the arborist industry and our members. That’s why we’re excited to support Rod Morris from the QLD Farmers Federation who is currently investigating the skills gap in the arborist industry.

Rod is looking to determine if improving the delivery method and funding for education courses will reduce or even remove the industry skills gap. To ensure both view points are covered, there are different surveys for students and employers with all data submitted being anonymous.

We know that the issue of a skills gap has become increasingly prevalent in recent years and we’re happy to be able to support the improvement of arborist education in QLD while maintaining an independent industry position.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and experiences on education and training in the Queensland arborist industry.
