I have no specific experience in providing training to Indigenous people, however I have developed and delivered heritage training for over 200 staff at Sydney Water Corporation in the environmental, property, management and infrastructure planning areas. The purpose of the training was to ensure heritage issues were identified, planned for and managed during maintenance and routine works and project planning. This included recognition of Indigenous heritage and was rolled out following several incidents. The training provided greatly reduced issues in the following years. Later the training included a "train-the-trainer" component to allow basic heritage training to be included in OH&S and Environmental Awareness Refresher training, which was rolled out across the organisation.
I have written the heritage section of the Environmental Handbook for Energy Australia (now Ausgrid). This covered basic heritage awareness and was incorporated into the general environmental training rolled out organisation wide.
I have also delivered lectures and run courses on public archaeology and heritage management for the University of Sydney, in the undergraduate Archaeology Program and in the postgraduate Environmental Law Program.
Futurepast Heritage Consulting has not delivered cultural heritage management training to an Indigenous group within the last 12 months (valid at October 2011).
