 WORKSHOPS 2017

Accredited oral history training coming back to Perth 18th & 19th November

Registrations are now open.

The nationally accredited oral history training will be delivered over two days by Dr Elaine Rabbitt (PhD oral history) and WA Oral History President 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.

Too busy to treat yourself to a weekend of oral history – think again?  This is a rare 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 two workshops are practical and hands on. Students will learn how to use professional recording equipment and they can bring their own recording devices.

CERTIFCATION
Those who complete the workshop, an interview and their assessment workbooks, will be awarded their certificate issued by the Goolarri Media Enterprises (GME) Registered Training Organisation No.51278.[i]

COURSE COSTS: $350 (NO GST) for OHA members, concession card holders and students

$395 (NO GST) for non-members & includes annual membership to OHA.

Includes enrolment fees, resources, participant handbook, and assessment.
