Oral History Australia
Giving Voice to the Past

Accredited Oral History Training

Each year the Oral History Western Australia runs nationally accredited oral history training courses through the Australian Vocational Education Training (VET) sector.

The weekend workshop provides you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in the practicalities of oral history and gain nationally recognised certification. This is a stepping stone for further learning and possible employment opportunities.

The training is delivered by Dr Elaine Rabbitt and Doug Ayre. Elaine has developed the oral history training package for AHCILM404 Record and Document Community History, drawn from the wealth of oral history teaching materials that are available in Australia and overseas.

Further information is available on the WA branch website.
