Dear ASC members,


The ASC has received a few requests to provide training in science
communication related skills. While the ASC itself does not provide training
programs, a number of our members do. 


I invite you to nominate training providers in science communication related
skills. You may nominate yourself. 


Please provide information about:

.        the name of the company or individual providing the training, 

.        contact details (email, phone, postal address),

.        name of course,

.        the length of the course, 

.        the skills addressed in the program, 

.        cost to attend course, 

.        location(s) where the course(s) is offered,

.        name of each presenter with relevant qualifications and experience,

.        maximum number of participants per session 


The ASC has a goal to develop a national accreditation system for short
courses. Until that is in place the ASC cannot recommend specific courses
but we can let build a database to help answer enquiries. 


Accreditation is a complex process even for short courses. The National
Council has endorsed a preliminary framework for assessment but more needs
to be done before we are confident of creating a sustainable program. Let me
know if you want to hear more about the proposed accreditation process.
