Focused on its own operations to meet ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems standards in 2003, NSI now provides advice and training to other TAFEs and universities to meet the challenges of today’s burgeoning green economy. Each year, over 3000 students are trained in the specific fields of land, environmental and coastal management, and this is growing in response to the increasing demand for green‐skilled workers.
NSI are introducing new environmentally based courses and modules across all industrysectors, such as renewable energy; grid connected PV systems; insulation training; energy, water and waste minimisation; green plumbing; automotive gas refitting; and ecologically sustainable building design and construction. They are also changing the way many traditional trades are taught. Building, electrical, plumbing, architecture and landscaping students learn about sustainability by designing and building sustainable structures, which in turn are used by students learning about sustainability. Also hospitality students are working towards the closed‐loop ‘farm to table to farm’ approach and Green Table certification using the latest in waste, water and energy minimisation equipment and techniques.
