About AITD.    

Established in 1971 as a not-for-profit association owned by members, the Australian Institute of Training and Development's original purpose was to raise the profile of workplace training as an industry in its own right and to create networking opportunities for individuals with an interest in the subject.

Today, AITD offers a broad range of products, services and support to a diverse and passionate community of L&D practitioners located across the globe.


We believe in the value of continuous learning and professional development to build a thriving, adaptable workforce. Our mission is to equip learning and development professionals, across Australia and beyond, with the skills necessary to achieve this through professional development opportunities, networking and knowledge sharing.
