Australian company launches Priva accreditation scheme

In addition to their existing Priva training courses, Genesis Horticultural Solutions announced that their Priva approved End User Accreditation program is now operational.

Priva End Users now have the opportunity to have their individual skills formally assessed and accredited against a set of Priva NL approved competencies.

Priva 'Basic' accreditation is based on a wide range of navigational skills around the system, and this then leads on to three levels of competence,
  • Level One Heating
  • Level One Ventilation
  • Level One Irrigation (i400)
A separate Irrigation accreditation process for the i500 irrigation & moisture balance systems will be rolled out across the coming months, along with additional topics. Level Two and Three accreditation's will also follow for all subjects.

The concept behind the process has been to establish an ‘Industry Passport’ system for Priva Users. This has largely been the brainchild of Genesis Director Tony Bundock, who saw a need for the process primarily in the Australian market.

‘Many Priva users have established a high level of competence with climate control and irrigation systems, but have not had any formal way to have their skills recognised’, said Tony. ‘The accreditation process acts as a great measure for those end users who already have skills and want these formalised, and the process also allows for training to a specific standard for new end users’.

Participants in the Genesis accreditation process can also gain access to the award winning Priva Academy, providing a source of underpinning knowledge around each topic.

For participants wanting to undertake the accreditation process, this can either be done on a face to face basis, or remotely via team viewer.
