IMPORTANT NSW ADVICE:
The NSW Government has directed NESA to undertake an immediate review of their processes. While most activities are on hold, the instruction on the NESA website states: “NESA Endorsed providers can continue to develop and deliver NESA Registered PD under their existing scope of endorsement – business as usual.”
However, the NSW Government website states face-to-face on-site PD cannot begin again. We will only be conducting our off-site courses until this contradiction is addressed.
