The HCAA endorses distance learning courses to our members through the Yeronga TAFE College in Queensland. Distance learning programs are particularly helpful for those members who are geographically isolated, or find it difficult to attend face-to-face educational programs. Currently a Diploma of Engineering - Construction Hydraulics is available via distance learning, and we will be adding more educational and CPD programs in the future.
