On-Site Training At Your Council
Training Available At Councils

WALGA Training recognise that our members are located all over the State and we are constantly thinking of better ways that we can serve your training needs. One way we do this is by offering all of our training courses on-site. This means that we bring the training to you, saving you time and money.

Why On-site Training?

Save Time
Whether your Local Government is located in the metropolitan area or out in the regions you can eliminate the need for your Elected Members and Officers to travel to us by hosting your own training. This method is particularly effective when you have a number of participants on the same course.

Save Money
On-site training allows your Local Government to save money on travel costs, accommodation, allowances and loss of productivity. You can also collaborate with other Local Governments to boost numbers and save even more.

On-site training allows for flexibility in your choice of location, course format and choice of date. This allows for training to be scheduled at a time and location that is most convenient to your Elected Members and Officers.

Customise your Training
If your Local Government has something in particular you would like to focus on, ask us about customising one of our quality training courses to suit your needs.

Our Commitment to Quality Training
As a Registered Training Organisation, (RTO CODE 51992) WALGA provides up-to-date, relevant, tailored training solutions to Councils, Elected Members and Local Government Officers by offering professional development, industry updates and best practice for Local Government.
As the peak body for Local Government in the largest state in Australia, we understand there are many challenges and barriers for members to access training.

Following the challenges we all faced in 2020, WALGA recognises the importance of making training accessible and flexible.
Therefore, in 2021 we offer an increased range of flexible delivery methodologies to meet the specific needs of Mayors/Presidents, Councillors, Executives and Local Government Officers.  

With our large course offerings (non-accredited and accredited) to choose from, there are many options to develop and maintain your professional capabilities.

In consultation with industry advisory groups, WALGA Training continuously invests in the development of contemporary learning resources keeping up to date with changes in legislation, codes of practice, operational guidelines, industry and good governance practice. Our pool of carefully selected training professionals are passionate subject matter experts and are eager to share their extensive knowledge and skills.

All training is delivered of the highest quality in a stimulating, inclusive and supportive environment. WALGA is committed to enhancing the understanding of the diverse roles and responsibilities in Local Government, promoting high standards and enabling all members to perform their job well and in the best interests of the community they represent.
