Kauri Dieback Certification 

This free training focuses on upskilling volunteers and residents within Kaipatiki, and sharing how to look after kauri trees while conducting pest control or restoration work such as weeding, predator control or planting.

Who should attend

If you have kauri on your property or you are a volunteer who wants to safely continue your work in areas of Kauri - this is the workshop for you!

Training will consist of a 2 hour programme, detailing the science behind dieback and its spread, a cleaning exercise and field work setting out mock kauri zones where extra protection procedures will be required. This training is based on the Standard Operating Procedure for working in Kauri forests by Ark in the Park, Council and Iwi in the Waitakere Ranges.


Sponsored by the Auckland Council kauri dieback team, you will come out of the training with the knowledge, equipment and certification to enable you to protect our treasured kauri forests.

Once training and an online test has been completed, participants will be issued with personal hygiene equipment, branded vest and ID certification/compliance card. You will be certified to re-enter reserves and conduct your volunteer work, modified as necessary to the new standard operating procedure. Only those who are certified will be able to re-enter closed reserves or tracks.
