The program covers the skills and knowledge on how to perform a variety of administration or operational duties, working as part of a team, using effective communication techniques and how to offer a quality service to residents or other people from both inside and outside your Local Government. Depending on the role of the Officer, we offer two different program streams, Administration and Waste Management.

All learning resources have been specifically developed and contextualised for Local Governments in Western Australia.
