Based on current advice and government directives regarding the management of COVID-19 pandemic, AMA Victoria & SIRA have decided that for the foreseeable future the delivery of Impairment Assessment Training, both Core & Specialty training modules, will need to transition from a face-to-face format to a webinar (online) format.

As you would appreciate, we have made this decision in the best interests of yourself, the facilitators, staff and the community.
