Natural Resource Management

This programme aims to develop future generations of Natural Resource Managers with the requisite understanding and practical skills to manage their areas effectively and in cooperation with local communities.

Natural Resource Management has been a core focus of Southern African Wildlife College since it was established in 1996.

The Natural Resource Management qualifications we offer maintain a healthy balance between theory and practice with a strong emphasis on applied learning for professionals wanting to take the next step in their careers.

As the College is based within the Greater Kruger National Park, students acquire hands-on experience in all aspects of nature conservation during their training. Furthermore, a Work Integrated Learning project bridges the gap between classroom learning and workplace reality.

Each year, the College offers two Higher Education and Training Certificate programmes in natural resource management, namely:

These are our flagship programmes and we’re incredibly proud of our graduates, who are placed throughout South and southern Africa.

We also offer a number of short courses in various aspects of natural resource management, as listed below.
