Our Members are spread right around this massive country and we recognise that it is not physically possible to be able to travel and attend all WIOA events. The Board and staff have been considering the option to utilise webinars for some time as a way of linking our remote members and providing more services without the need for travel.
In December, WIOA conducted our first online webcast to provide an update on the recertification scheme to certified operators and other interested parties. The webinar received over 60 registrations and enabled us to communicate with individuals from across Australia. Webinar participants logged in from Far North Queensland, South Australia and the Eastern states of Australia.
It is intended that the webinar facility will be utilised extensively in 2018 and beyond. A series of technical and more general information webinars are currently under development with a range of guest and expert speakers being arranged to talk on a variety of topics
