Core Education


Due to the rapidly changing nature of COVID-19 in Australia, Fundraising Institute Australia (FIA) is taking steps to ensure the health and safety of our course participants, tutors, members and staff. FIA will postpone all FIA face-to-face courses effective from Monday 23 March 2020 until further notice. We will endeavour to reschedule these courses for later in the year or work to provide online learning options where appropriate. FIA will continue to update course registrants and prospective students regularly. Please contact training@fia.org.au with any queries or if your course has been affected.
