The Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania offers a number of training opportunities for organisations and individuals. The current training program is divided into modules. A training program is delivered onsite at the MRC Glenorchy. Individuals can register and attend independently or as supported by their workplace.
An organisation can request training be delivered at their workplace. The organisation can identify which modules would be most suitable for their staff development needs, and then contact the Training Coordinator to book training: firstname.lastname@example.org.
