Skills & Knowledge

AECL's Skills & Knowledge Team is developing a Poultry Stockperson’s Induction Skillsets (P.S.I.S), for the Egg Industry. This program is aimed at providing new or relatively new employees with the essential knowledge they need to know within the first few days of commencing employment.  Basic hen health & welfare, biosecurity, workplace communications and personal hygiene are just some of the topics to be covered. 

Please email or telephone (02) 9409 6911 to discuss how AECL might be able to assist with your farm’s training requirements.
