AGS offers a wide range of training courses for our clients that relate to many aspects of the business of government. See our Training Calendar below.

Our regular training calendar includes administrative law, FOI, privacy, contract management, aspects of the litigation process and the making and interpretation of laws. The courses range from 1-hour sessions through to 3-day intensives.

We are pleased to introduce online registration in response to our clients’ feedback. You can now register for training and either pay by credit card or request an invoice from us online. Please follow the links within our National training calendar. You will receive instant confirmation of your registration once you have completed the booking form, however, be aware that courses will only run subject to receiving sufficient registrations.

In addition to our Training Calendar, we can also run training for you in-house. Email us or call us on 02 6253 7145 to discuss a quote.

We are now also offering video training courses which allows you to learn from your desk. We will continue to add more courses as we produce them. Follow this link to learn from your desk. (Hosted by Redback Conferencing in partnership with AGS).

We offer some complimentary places in our training courses to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Inslander government employees.

Our courses attract CLE/CPD points.
