Training Calendar

Welcome to our Training Calendar 2019 courses which are open for registration.

AGS offers a wide range of courses in administrative law, freedom of information, privacy, employment law, statutory interpretation, advice-writing, contract management and other topics relevant to government law. These sessions are designed to assist government employees in acquiring the legal knowledge and skills they need to do their jobs efficiently.

Online registration with credit card payment is available by clicking on Register in ‘Upcoming events’ for the course of your choice. You will receive instant confirmation of your registration once you have completed the online form and paid for your training.

We offer some complimentary places in Training Calendar courses to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander government employees. Please email the registration details to trainingservices@ags.gov.au or call 02 6253 7464.

If you require an invoice or any assistance with registration, please email us trainingservices@ags.gov.au or call 02 6253 7464.

Our presenters are all AGS lawyers who are subject matter experts in the subjects they teach. AGS training sessions are full of interactive exercises, examples and challenging discussion, and always draw on the valuable experience participants themselves bring along. Participants will leave an AGS course with new knowledge, valuable insight and a fresh perspective.

Participants are provided with comprehensive and up-to-date course materials which can be used in the workplace as a handy reference tool.

Our courses also attract CLE/CPD points (see table below).

AGS can deliver our standard course modules ‘in-house’ or we can tailor these and other presentations to suit your agency’s needs. Please email your in-house training requirements to trainingservices@ags.gov.au and we will provide a quote or call 02 6253 7145.
