All of our eLearning courses contain a wide-range of media components, scenarios and narrative elements to help ensure that no matter if you are a visual, auditory or reading/writing learner, that you can learn effectively and with enjoyment.

Why eLearning?

Easy Access
Elected Members and Officers have the freedom to learn at the own convenience and at a pace that is right for them. This is especially convenient for regional participants who can find it challenging getting to and from classroom training venues. Participants get access to the same high standard of learning that is available in our classroom training, but at a time that suits any time schedule.

Specialised Courses
WALGA has worked closely with Local Government content experts to create training courses from the ground up to best suit the Western Australian context. You will find no generic eLearning courses on our website. Every course has been created by identifying a strong need in the sector and then working with content experts to provide the most accurate and useful training experience possible.

Save Time and Money
As you aren’t spending any money on a trainer’s time, a training room or equipment, eLearning tends to be less expensive than face to face training. You can complete eLearning on a range of devices including PCs, Macs, tablets, iPads and smartphones.
