About Education

The AHCSA RTO Team have a proven track record of facilitating quality training and development needs for its Aboriginal Primary Health stakeholders throughout South Australia. The team has facilitated nationally recognised Primary Health Care and Research qualifications since 2004 to its constituents, and its broader National Aboriginal Health Service network.

AHCSA designed a Simulated Learning Environment (SLE) that reflects a real clinic environment for the practice and assessment of primary health care and clinical skills. AHCSA educators are able to create realistic clinical settings which ensure authenticity when completing scenarios to increase clinical training capacity and efficiency.
