Local Laws Officer Fundamentals

We provide a range of nationally recognised qualifications (local government specific) and council-specific non-accredited short courses as well as other professional development training options.

Who should Attend?

This program has been developed for Queensland Local Laws officers and will discuss ethics for local laws compliance; the powers of authorised officers and investigating local laws. Our program will include relative group work, case studies and role plays.

Course objectives

This program will provide local laws officers with an overall understanding of many aspects and responsibilities of their role. Post training, officers should gain a very good understanding of investigations; how to conduct and finalise them.
