    Hi Laura,
    Simply go to the AIIA web site (www.aiia.com.au) and click on the AIIA Skills Hub menu. When you register just select QUT as your organisation (unless your employer is a member). You can find the courses in the catalogue and pre-register to gain access to the AIIA subsidy for these courses.
    All the best Peter
