The team's relevant qualifications and experience:

Training experience

Significance Heritage & Archaeology and Mulong Productions have over 15 years of combined experience in the development and delivery of cultural heritage management training and cultural recording experience.

A number of recent projects have been delivered, including land management workshops that included traditional fire management, GPS and cultural heritage identification and management. Previously, training has been delivered to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants in the procedural requirements of cultural heritage management, including the identification, recording and management of finds and legislative requirements in order to manage finds appropriately.

Various mediums have been utilised in order to gain the best outcomes in regards to cultural heritage management, such as the use of video and audio recordings to gather and archive cultural heritage data, film production, interactive DVD's, and websites to present data gathered through cultural heritage recordings.

Although the training is not currently accredited, Significance Heritage & Archaeology and Mulong Productions have access to registered trainers and assessors who can provide the appropriate accreditation to participants upon request.

Recent experience

Significance Heritage & Archaeology and Mulong Productions have delivered cultural heritage management training to an Indigenous group within the last 12 months (valid at June 2013).
