10 April 2024

>> Are you a natural hazards researcher or scientist working in the RMA space?

>> Have you been asked to present evidence or be an expert witness at the Environment Court?

The Resilience Challenge has been collaborating with EQC Toka Tū Ake and the New Zealand Planning Institute (NZPI) to offer professional development courses specifically for natural hazards researchers and scientists working in the planning and RMA space. We’re really excited to be able to offer these courses again in May 2024.

Being an Expert Witness and Presenting Evidence in the Environment Court is designed for natural hazards researchers and scientists whose work has the potential to be called before the Environment Court and may require them to be an expert witness in the process. This online, interactive course will take you through the processes and practices involved in producing and presenting evidence, facing cross examination and participating in expert conferencing.

This guided online course will be 4 hours (approx.) in duration, with opportunities to engage in discussion. To maximise learning opportunities you may be asked to complete some preparatory work prior to the course start.

Course date: Tuesday 7th May 2024

Cost: FREE

Registration will be on a ‘first in, first served’ basis. Please register thoughtfully; to ensure course quality and provide space for discussion, spaces are limited. 

This course is offered fees free thanks to funding provided by EQC Toka Tū Ake.
