We’re regularly adding to the lineup so please check back here regularly or check the ALIA Events Calendar.
ALIA Training courses and workshops draw upon the experience and expertise of leading universities, TAFEs and adult educators.
Learning is facilitated through traditional face-to-face workshops and seminars alongside a variety of contemporary, online interfaces. Many courses are self-paced so can be completed at a time to suit today's busy lifestyles and some courses may even be credited towards future formal tertiary study.
All courses and workshops completed through ALIA Training are valid professional development activities under the ALIA PD Scheme. While we strongly encourage those who are eligible to participate in the PD Scheme, you do not need to be doing so to undertake an ALIA Training course or workshop; indeed most options are also open to non-members of the Association.

ALIA Conferences and Seminars
ALIA’s major conferences are THE Australian LIS sector events of the year. They provide professionals and interested supporters the opportunity to renew old ties, make new connections, keep abreast of the very latest in professional practice and research from across Australia and overseas and to meet with dozens of LIS suppliers to learn about the latest tools and options available to them.
For more details about our latest conferences see our conference pages.
ALIA Special Interest Groups' PD Events
Sometimes your ideal professional development can be found through ALIA’s special interest Groups; whether it be through the convenience of a smaller local event or the rich learning made possible through a sub-sector specialist event, there’s a wide array of options available for you. PD events made possible through ALIA Groups often provide great value-for-money due to the hard work, networks, and dedication of the Group committees and volunteers involved. These motivated, professional practitioners are at the coal-face and know just what’s wanted in their area of practice or locality.
