Most of the documents on this page have version numbers that you should be able to check against any older copies you may have: older versions are generally invalid and/or contain out-of-date contact or pricing information etc.

This page is divided into three sections: the first section contains resources that include information and some other added features specific to Australia. The second section contains alternative versions of those resources for trainers in other countries. The third section contains research articles and other resources for all Trainers.
