In-Service Training Programs
Professional Development at Work
Health Skills Australia supports a number of community service and health care providers with in-service training. As an employer, you can ensure staff are always up to date with the latest practice guidelines, essential skills and regulation requirements, with continuing education during work hours.
In-service training programs can be customised for your organisation's needs, or you can choose from the extensive list below. We can come to your workplace, or your staff can attend training at one of our campuses.
There is a minimum training session of two hours. Our educators have the relevant vocational and speciality experience for each program.
