Mandatory candidate training

Election candidates will be required to complete mandatory training, run by Local Government Victoria (LGV), prior to nominating for the 2020 elections.

As prescribed in updated Electoral Regulations, mandatory candidate training will be delivered via an online eLearning module.

In addition, the Victorian Local Governance Association will conduct Candidate Information sessions until 17 September.

The VLGA sessions aim to complement the LGV mandatory training and offer candidates an interactive workshop with a facilitator where they can participate in discussion and ask questions. To book a session please contact the VLGA.

LGPro is also running Introduction to Local Government courses from September to December. More information is on the LGPro website.
