Applications for Health Promotion Practitioner Registration open soon!
Health Promotion professionals across Australia will soon have the opportunity to apply to earn the title IUHPE Registered Health Promotion Practitioner.
An online application system has been developed and is being tested for reliability.
By becoming registered and encouraging your colleagues to do so, you will be ensuring the quality and credibility of the Australian Health Promotion workforce.
Registration is not mandatory for employment. It is designed to provide practical recruitment assistance to employers.
In early 2016 AHPA was approved by the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) to become the National Accreditation Organisation (NAO) for Australia. We now have a governance structure in line with IUHPE requirements and have piloted the online application process.
Check our Frequently Asked Questions for more information about the registration process and the role of the NAO (final links coming soon).
