2024 Training Schedule

CREDENTIALING WORKSHOPS:

We are funded by the Whaikaha to provide 35 training days per year. Additional non-subsidised refresher workshops can also be requested – these are open to anyone.

There are cost benefits to hosting workshops. If you are a Whaikaha funded service, consider hosting a Level 1 or Level 2 workshop. Complete a Request to Host a Workshop form so we can respond accordingly. Any general queries regarding workshops can be directed to [email protected].
