The National Environment Centre, or NEC, is Riverina Institute’s headquarters for specialist training in Civil Construction, Natural Resource Management, Spatial Information (GIS), Water Operations, Permaculture, Organic Farming, environmentally related studies and sustainable agriculture.
Students from all around the country study through the NEC and as such the campus has become a model in flexibility. The majority of course are delivered via distance learning, however the NEC also offers on-campus learning as well as courses in the workplace.
We build the skills, qualifications and employability of people in regional Australia. This ensures that benefits to graduates include excellent employment prospects, high salaries and improved chances of promotion.
We focus on supporting rural and remote regions to develop skilled professionals locally. Through videoconferencing, online courses and the use of the latest technology, the Institute brings training from the campus to the home or workplace and provides opportunities for more people to study on their own terms.
Our commitment to aligning with industry needs is achieved through the close working relationships that our teaching staff has with industry partners and clients and our strong support for students gaining their qualifications in the workplace.
