Centre for Advanced Learning
The Centre for Advanced Learning (CAL) is an initiative of DA, offering innovative courses in areas of high-demand for dietitians. Based on the latest evidence and peer-reviewed, CAL delivers high-quality Continuing Professional Development (CPD) that meets the needs of dietitians now, and into the future.
Online, 6 September – 15 November 2021
Why consider a Centre for Advanced Learning course?
Ongoing professional development is vital for all involved in health care. DA have recognised the need to provide up-to-date, evidence-based and professionally relevant postgraduate courses for those who:
- Require upskilling e.g. have had a break from the workforce
- Wish to pursue a new area of practice
- May be overseas Dietetic Skills Recognition candidates
- Come into contact with a range of practice areas and need to be confident
- Value the opportunity for formal learning in a practice area
- May be planning their career advancement.
These courses differ from DA updates/webinars as they provide more in-depth skill and knowledge development ideally to assist in career and professional development. These courses are not aligned with any tertiary institutions and, at this time, do not offer any Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for any postgraduate study through a university.
Course format options
A range of fresh and innovative courses will be offered. Courses will span many practice areas and include a modular approach to building skills and knowledge.
Opportunities will be offered in various formats, including face-to-face and online.
Some Programs may be held in conjunction with relevant external groups.
Courses may be a mix of both online and face to face modules. Some programs may solely be face to face. Most courses will have an assessed component.
