In order to become accredited applicants must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the RIAWA Seed Accreditation system. To facilitate this we have created an online training module which all accredited organisations and individuals need to complete. However, the course has been made accessible to all, so seed collectors who don't necessarily want accreditation can learn more about best practice seed collection in Western Australia.

Topics covered include:

  • Licensing and legislation
  • Seed harvesting techniques
  • Seed drying and processing
  • Seed storage and grading
