International Humanitarian Law training courses


The Australian Red Cross international humanitarian law program provides training and education on IHL to a variety of organisations and individuals. This includes the Australian Defence Force, civil servants, humanitarian workers, lawyers, journalists, medical professionals and numerous university courses.

There are also opportunities for Red Cross people, secondary and tertiary students from a range of disciplines and interested members of the public to attend IHL introductory courses that are held in most states and territories around Australia.

Courses are regularly scheduled throughout the year, and are announced on our IHL Facebook page and in our fortnightly Update e-newsletter. Places are often limited, so pleaseĀ subscribe to the Update orĀ follow our Facebook page to guarantee your participation.

The IHL team can also assist in tailoring course components to suit a particular group or organisation. To find out more about this or to discuss what options are available, please contact our IHL Training Coordinator.
