Education, Training and Professional Development

AIRA recognises the importance of formal education and professional development for individuals involved in the investor relations or related functions within listed entities. AIRA hosts a number of events and Professional Development courses:

  • Certificate of Investor Relations. In response to an increased requirement for specialised investor relations training, the Australasian Investor Relations Association has launched a Certificate of Investor Relations course. Derived from the 7 course modules delivered throughout Day 1 of AIRA's Diploma of Investor Relations course, the Certificate course can be undertaken in one of two course delivery modes: online by computer-based e-learning, allowing you to work through each module at your own pace in your own time; or

    face-to-face training by attending the Day 1 program of AIRA’s Diploma of Investor Relations course. On completion of the full 7 modules via either study option, students may elect to sit an online exam. On passing this exam, they will be awarded a Certificate of Investor Relations.


  • Diploma of Investor Relations. This 3 days course is run annually in Sydney and Melbourne and it is the only specialised investor relations training course in Australasia that awards a qualificiation in Investor Relations. Day one has been specifically designed as a stand-alone course for those new or recently appointed to their first IR role. By the end of the day, participants will have the tools and techniques to run an annual IR programme within the myriad of regulation and understand the needs of all stakeholders. Days two and three have been developed as an intensive course for experienced investor relations professionals or individuals who have completed day one as a stand-alone course. A combination of presentations and case studies will assist practitioners to explore recent developments and current IR issues. On completing all three days of the course, participants may undertake a one-hour online exam. On passing this exam individuals will be awarded with a Diploma of Investor Relations by the Australasian Investor Relations Association and may use DipInvRel post-nominals.
  • Specialised Investor Relations Programs. We cater for your spcialised Investor Relations training needs, whether you are a micro, small, mid cap or large cap company. Based on increased training demands of our members we are now also branching into specialised in-house training on disclosure and disclosure-related issues.
