Health Training Australia (Inc) (HTA) is a not for profit organisation established in 1997 as a division of the Australian Medical Association (WA) Inc group of companies. It is part of a national network of over 180 Group Training Organisations around Australia which now employs almost 40 000 apprentices and trainees.
As a Group Training Organisation, HTA takes on the role of the employer of apprentices and trainees. Trainees are employed by HTA and placed with a ‘host employer’ where they work and gain skills both on and off the job. HTA, which also trades as HTA Recruitment and Training, act as a mechanism through which employers can recruit staff and formalise entry level employment and training in a coordinated manner.
Health Training Australia provides support to a workforce of between 100 and 150 trainees primarily in health, aged care and home and community care, and offers experienced personnel with considerable expertise across these industries.
In 2001 Health Training Australia became a Registered Training Organisation specialising in aged care, home and community care and health support services.
HTA is a current member of Group Training Australia, is a quality endorsed Group Training Organisation and has developed a Group Training Code of Practice which it abides by. HTA prides itself in providing quality service delivery and a high standard of ethics.
