The establishment of a Biosecurity Training Centre is the cornerstone for the development of a Centre for Excellence for Biosecurity in the Asia Pacific Region.
The BTC represents a key element in the Biosecurity and Compliance Group's (BCG) broader reform agenda. The initiative will strengthen the professionalism of Australia's frontline Biosecurity protection capability by delivering a structured and rigourous approach to training. Allied with a dedicated research capability, the initiative will enhance the BCG's ability to track and respond to current and emerging biosecurity threats as envisaged in Biosecurity 2030 and consistent with the likely directions of the National Biosecurity Strategy which remains in development.
The BTC would comprise a centralised hub with training facilities in agreed state capitals (the network) to service the local biosecurity officer population.
A hub location consistent with the Government's regionalisation and recovery policy agendas is ideally to be a non-metropolitan area and aligned with the designed Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hubs.
The network will provide specialised pathway training and general training at agreed state and territory sites.
