IPAA WA Courses to Be Accredited Towards Certificate IV in Government

The Institute of Public Administration Australia WA (IPAA WA) established in 1945, is a not-for-profit, professional association for public servants working across all three tiers of government (State, Federal and Local), not-for-profit and academic institutions in Western Australia. Its purpose is to ‘advance excellence in the public sector’.

IPAA WA Chief Executive Officer, Mr Gavin Lewis said the Institute is working in partnership with the Central Institute of Technology to cross reference the learning outcomes and capabilities of its range of courses. 

“Approved competencies of IPAA WA’s courses will provide some recognition of prior learning for the Central Institute’s Certificate IV and Diploma course in Government,” Mr Lewis said.

“Attending IPAA WA’s courses in conjunction with Central's Certificate IV in Government, will allow participants to gain additional insight and exposure to government procedures and practices and an understanding of government values and principles.”

“IPAA WA has delivered employee development programs for a number of local governments, including, City of Melville, Subiaco, Rockingham and Bunbury. We have also serviced regional based authorities such as Broome Port Authority, Regional Development Australia – South West and delivered webinars for country-based employees of the Department of Environment Regulation.”

Former or future course participants of IPAA WA are encouraged to register for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) at CIT for the Certificate IV in Government. For additional information and cost estimate for RPL, contact the CIT on (08) 9427 1222 or email frances.gallagher@central.wa.edu.au.
