Cultural Heritage Management Australia delivers training through a partnership between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
The team has the following relevant qualifications and skills:
- Stuart Huys - Bachelor of Arts (Honours), Diploma of Business, accredited trainer. Stuart has been a consultant archaeologist for 20 years, working throughout Australia. He has delivered a range of heritage training programs and has also lectured at the Australian National University.
- Dr Sophie Collins - Bachelor of Arts (Honours), PhD and Post-Doctoral Fellowship on Aboriginal stone artefacts. Sophie is an expert in the identification and interpretation of stone artefacts. She has directed many excavations, including teaching undergraduate field schools for the Australian National University. Sophie worked as the Senior Archaeological Consultant in the ACT Heritage Unit, giving her a thorough understanding of the legal and legislative requirements for heritage and Aboriginal community consultation in the ACT and elsewhere in Australia.
In addition to these personnel, Cultural Heritage Management Australia works with Indigenous representatives from around Australia to assist in the delivery of training courses. These include Tracy Mcleod (Qld), Andrew Brown (Qld), David Johnston (ACT) and Vernon Graham (Tas).
Cultural Heritage Management Australia (CHMA) is a company that specialises in the assessment and management of Indigenous and historic heritage. CHMA personnel have completed over 1,200 projects throughout Australia, and this work includes cultural heritage assessments for some of the largest infrastructure works to be constructed in Australia over the past decade.
CHMA has developed and delivered a range of training courses, focusing on Indigenous cultural heritage and land management. These courses have received national accreditation, and CHMA has joined forces with McMillan (the registered training organisation) for the purposes of delivering these training courses. CHMA chose to develop this alliance because of McMillan's extensive experience in delivering accredited training packages to government departments and private industry, including a range of Aboriginal organisations. The main training courses focusing on Indigenous cultural heritage and land management being offered by CHMA and McMillan are:
- Certificate III and IV in Conservation and Land Management (specialising in Indigenous Land Management)
- Indigenous Cultural Heritage Awareness Training
- Indigenous Cultural Heritage Management
Cultural Heritage Management Australia has delivered cultural heritage management training to an Indigenous group within the last 12 months (valid at April 2013).
