Training Programs & Courses

Carbal Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research (CIHR)

Our training courses have been developed by the Carbal Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research with the objective of delivering culturally-appropriate and relevant education to not only health and clinical support professionals, but also to organisations nationally. 

Many of our education packages are accredited with RACGP and ACRRM for General Practitioners to achieve their respective CPD points. Through our education and promotion efforts, we aim to promote effective stakeholder and community engagement for the advancement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and wellbeing by advancing cultural competency in organisations across Australia.

Our ever-expanding suite of educational content that can be delivered via four main pathway options:

  • Online Learning System – right location, right time, self paced.
  • Independently as a service-to-client provider;
  • Sponsorship (eg, Primary Health Network PHN sponsorship or National Best Practice Unit);
  • Under contract with Registered Training Organisations.

Our online learning was developed with the intent to increase flexibility for participants, without sacrificing interactivity that is critical for in-depth learning as per the RACGP and ACRRM criteria.
