Cultural Competence Program (CPD Education)
The Cultural Competence Program (CCP) is a range of online training courses and online resources designed to train people to better manage cultural diversity.
Courses are available anytime, anyplace and on any device via app or web. They feature short-films, real stories, animations and thought provoking activities supported by up-to-date research and ongoing access to detailed reference materials. The Program is complemented by The Cultural Atlas – an online resource which gives detailed and practical information about a large range of cultures in Australia.
The Program takes around 3 – 4 hours to complete, with each module featuring a learning outcome and links to additional material to allow participants to delve deeper into the subjects presented.
