Professional Development Training

Heartlinks is passionate about sharing our knowledge and expertise, with a vision of creating capable communities by building the skills of workplaces and professionals.

Our training programs reflect current trends and the needs of the health and community services sectors and can be adapted to meet the needs of the participating group.

Our qualified and experienced facilitators have expertise in a range of areas and training can be tailored to meet the needs and priorities of the participant group.


The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting our ability to offer all programs as some of our programs do not suit online delivery. In response, we are developing new programs to support our community.
