PDC Course Validation Protocol – Permaculture Design Certificate (72 hour international module), read and reviewed by Robin Clayfield (Earthcare education- Crystal Waters, Australia)

This protocol is the result of the Ellipse’s work following international reflections and proposals (Permaculture Convergences) concerning the 72-hour module as well as its own internal reflection concerning the certification, training and qualification of trainers.

Although the Statutes stipulate that the Academy will take over the training after the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course – 72 hour international module, the Ellipse (Board of Directors) considers it appropriate to define quality criteria to validate the Permaculture Design Certificates on behalf of the Swiss Permaculture Academy.
