If you’re interested in seeing VAHPA grown in both size and strength, we’d encourage you to book yourself in to one of the upcoming VAHPA training courses. Training is open to all VAHPA Members and is particularly valuable to VAHPA Delegates.
You can read more about our courses including our new, “Grievance Handling for Delegates” course below. The most important thing however is that you register ASAP.
Courses are run in the CBD close to the VAHPA office. VAHPA assists with transport and/or accomodation for regional Members.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
