Oral History Western Australia (OHWA) offers a range of training opportunities to members and non-members.

Australian Vocational Education Training

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

The workshops provide an opportunity for participants to immerse themselves 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. The course is an elective for Certificate III & IV Screen & Media.

The workshops are generally held in Perth and Broome, but have also been held in Sydney and online. They are intended for beginners, intermediate and advanced students and those wanting to gain an oral history qualification.
