Council will be offering a 'train the trainer' program for people who want to upskill in community-wide management of Queensland Fruit Fly through leadership and capacity building.

Applications are now open for our Train the Trainer: Queensland Fruit Fly Program. This program is designed for people who want to upskill in community wide management of Queensland Fruit Fly through leadership and capacity building.

You will learn about a wide variety of control and management options for Queensland Fruit Fly that you'll be able to apply in your own community.

What's included

  • Access to a “library/borrowing” kit for each participant with a selection of traps, bait and netting
  • QFF “information pack” which includes information on products you can use in your own demonstrations and teaching
  • Printed and e-versions of information pamphlets to reproduce
  • A summary of how and when the control measures are best used
  • Council officer support
  • Catered lunch

After the training you will be provided with ongoing support to ensure you are comfortable in your knowledge in delivering this content and supporting others in QFF control.

Applicants must commit to running their own Fruit Fly workshop(s) based on the knowledge gained from the Council-run “Train the Trainer” workshops. Council will provide support (as required) to follow up with you in delivering content to your groups.

About you

Attendees can be nursery owners and employees, horticultural service providers, keen and interested citizens/community minded people, food share groups, foragers and associated groups, and/or community gardeners.

Some prior knowledge or experience with Queensland Fruit Fly is required.


Applications for this training are now closed.
