This year PSI is pleased to introduce our new modular-formatted PDC Course. Permaculture Sydney, Wollongong and Hunter Institutes have joined together to offer people this new service. This co-operative PDC in different regions of Sydney offers you a unique PDC Course experience. It is especially important for those that really find it difficult to do the two-week format or who like to take it at a slower pace and want more individualized tutoring. Modules 1 to 3 need to be completed first but then you can complete the others when you can. If you miss one weekend you can pick it up next time. The modular PDC format offers you more choice, more flexibility and more course content. It is slightly longer than the two-week course, running over 80 hours. Offered at different venues with different trainers provides students with a wide range of learning from different sites, experiences and styles of training. There are 14 modules all up that need to be completed to obtain your PDC Certificate. Three modules are covered through a series of 5 weekends. These are repeated throughout the year in case you can’t attend a date so you can pick them up later. You can take up to three years to complete your PDC and obtain your certificate. We will still be offering the two-week intensive PDC Course twice a year January and July and you can jump into these to complete some of your modules in these courses as well.

Here’s how the modular PDC works. You can attend all 14 modules on 4 occasions in 2017, 2018 and 2019
