Professional Certificates


The Public Land Consultancy is pleased to offer a new Certificate course –


“Professional Certificate in Public Land Governance”


The emphasis of our Certificate course is on the acquisition of a practical cross-disciplinary understanding of land law, directly relevant to real-world situations such as those encountered by Victorian municipalities and statutory authorities.


The course components will be offered at the Law Institute of Victoria in Melbourne, and (depending on demand) in Geelong, Horsham, Bendigo, Wangaratta or Benalla, and Warragul.


The Certificate requires students to attend three one-day training courses, and submit a 3000 word research / discussion paper, within a 2 year time-frame.  

Students may choose any three courses from our suite of training courses.  Our rolling calendar of course presentations can be found on our website, and in each edition of our monthly newsletter Terra Publica.


The total cost to complete the Certificate course is $2,000 plus GST, which includes the three course fees, as well as guidance and support in completing the written report.


Students may commence the Certificate course at any time of the year.
