Funding for the Living Longer Living Stronger program in Tasmania concludes on 30 June 2023. After this time, COTA Tasmania will no longer be administering the program, including delivery of the instructor accreditation course. Existing instructors and providers in Tasmania will retain their Living Longer Living Stronger accreditation status.
Due to the pending closure of the program in Tasmania, this course is no longer available to purchase.

Register for the practical workshop component of the course
The multimode delivery of the course involves online learning through our learning management system (COTA Learning) and a one day face-to-face practical session delivered in Hobart or Launceston, Tasmania.
Available workshop dates are detailed on the COTA Tasmania website. Please book your place at a workshop well in advance, as spots can fill up quickly. Registrations close one week prior to each workshop, to ensure that all participants have enough time to complete the online component prior to attending the workshop, as it’s foundational material that we build on during the workshop and sets the scene for the practical assessment.
