Training experience

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:
