About the Register

Register of Cultural Heritage Management Training Providers

The Register of Cultural Heritage Management Training Providers has been developed under the Australian Government's Working on Country program as a resource for Indigenous land and sea managers who want to undertake training in cultural heritage management.

The Register lists providers of both:

  1. Non-accredited cultural heritage management training - short courses in cultural heritage management
  2. Accredited training courses - units that form part of a formal qualification, e.g. TAFE Certificate

The Register reflects responses from training providers to an expression of interest process run by the department and may not include all relevant training providers.

The Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities does not endorse or recommend any listed training provider on the Register or warrant that any providers are suitable or appropriately qualified. Organisations should conduct their own procurement processes before choosing or engaging a trainer. Information on the Register is as provided by the listed training providers.
