Competencies and Course Map


View the 2022 Courses List (updated June 2022)

HLA aims to help health library staff to identify courses and learning programs that will contribute to their professional development, and if desired to gain recognition as a Certified Professional (Health).  The Health Specialisation Skills Audit will help you identify gaps in your knowledge and provide guidance for choosing your most appropriate continuing professional development activities. The Competencies Review project was undertaken in 2018 by Ann Ritchie, and reported at the RAILS Conference (Melbourne, 28th November, 2018)
