Therefore, SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker IRC, are consulting on an update of two practice qualifications the Certificate IV of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care Practice and the Diploma of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care Practice.
