Training Calendar


Training Calendar online courses are now available for registration for May–June 2020. We are looking at using the Department of Finance approved GovTeams platform for online training.

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 for Commonwealth government departments and agencies to assist Commonwealth government employees (lawyers and non-lawyers) in acquiring the legal knowledge and skills they need to do their jobs efficiently.

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.

All courses also attract CLE/CPD points (see table below) and a certificate of attendance can be provided upon request.

The courses offered will only run if sufficient registrations have been received.

We offer some complimentary places to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander government employees. For enquiries email trainingservices@ags.gov.au or call T 02 6253 7464.

In-house training is available for all standard courses and can be tailored to suit your agency’s needs. For enquiries email trainingservices@ags.gov.au or call T 02 6253 7145.
