Welcome to MHANZ.
We run events most years that provide opportunities for updating, these usually include overseas speakers, workshops and presentations. We also encourage our members and practitioners, like yourself, to participate in the programme.
There is a post grad certificate in Moving and Handling available at AUT, course lead is Dr Fiona Trevelyan. This is based on the curriculum from Dr Mike Fray in Loughborough University in the UK. MHANZ, Dr. Fray and ACC were integral to the introduction of this in 2015.
There is also the Australian AAMHP (Australian Association for the Manual Handling of people http://www.aamhp.org.au/) and their next conference is September 2020 in Adelaide. We provide information on these events in our newsletter and within the website itself so have a good look around.
Hope that helps!
