The ACIA conforms strictly with their COVID Safe Plan in order to conduct courses when restrictions allow. A copy of our COVID Operating Procedures will be made available to all participants prior to the course. The ACIA highly recommends COVID vaccinations to keep both staff and clients safe. To this end we are requiring all participants to be double vaccinated and have had their booster if they are eligible before attending any course. Documents to verify COVID vaccination status will be required to be emailed to the office along with your application form.

A completed course application form and a $100 deposit will reserve your place on any course. The course application form can be obtained at or by contacting the National Office.

Course prices are listed below, after the schedules. Also, all courses are subject to minimum numbers.

The ACIA is happy to liaise with you to organise courses for group bookings.
