When trainee MHFA Instructors are accepted into an MHFA Instructor Training Course, they agree to only conduct the MHFA Australia courses within Australia or Australian citizens located within Australian embassies, as the curriculum has been tailored specifically for the Australian context.
Our approach to allowing the MHFA training to run outside of Australia is to license the program to a suitable host organisation that can:
1) Tailor the curriculum to make it suitable for the local context
2) Train Instructors
3) Support the training being rolled out nationally.
Hence, we do not allow individuals from countries outside of Australia to become Accredited to deliver the MHFA Australia program.
