The PDC (Permaculture Design Course) provides a comprehensive introduction to permaculture principles, practices and applications. The course focus is on knowledge about permaculture rather than the skills to practice. As such the PDC provides a valuable foundation training module for the accredited vocational permaculture trade certificates, Cert III and Cert IV, and Diploma. Hence the PDC forms part of the initial APT Cert III, IV and diploma programs at Djanbung Gardens.

The APT (Accredited Permaculture Training) qualifications have both knowledge and skills requirements which are beyond the scope of a 72 hour PDC. These APT courses cover all the knowledge and skills requirements to be a competent and professional permaculture practitioner and at Cert IV level, a permaculture designer.
