CHMS is developing a suite of Professional Development courses for delivery from 2021. These are designed for those with an interest in heritage and museum professional practice, and particularly for those involved in the curation and care of First Nations heritage.

We are working to have these courses also approved for delivery with assessment as micro-credentials. Check back for updates. The current offerings are listed below.


Introduction to Repatriation: Principles, Policy and Practice

The repatriation of Ancestral Remains is a highly significant Indigenous achievement and inter-cultural development of the past 40 years. Participants will explore the practice, history, meaning and significance of repatriation for Indigenous peoples, museums and broader society. For further information regarding the course, please see the detailed course page.
