In Australia’s rural industries there is a growing demand for specialist inputs from advisers and consultants in all fields. A critical issue is the quality of these specialist inputs, with quality related to the competency and performance of advisors and consultants. At present there are no prescribed qualifications, no peer assessment, no requirement for ongoing professional development to drive the provision of quality specialist input from consultants and advisers in most primary industry and environment sectors. This report presents the outcomes from a study to assess the demand for a National Accreditation Scheme (NAS) for Professionals (consultants and advisers) in the Natural Resources, Agricultural and related sectors.
