Local Government Victoria Mandatory Candidate Training

Information on the new Mandatory Candidate Training requirements of the new Local Government Act 2020.

Are you interested in running as a candidate in Swan Hill Rural City Council’s elections?

Eligibility requirements for local government election candidates have changed. This year, for the first time, there is a new requirement that all candidates must complete Local Government Candidate Training before you are able to nominate and provide proof to the VEC when you nominate as a candidate. This includes all serving or former Councillors intending to nominate.

The mandatory Local Government Candidate Training course for the 2020 elections is now available online. The online course will take around an hour to complete and ensure candidates fully understand the role of Councillor and its requirements.

The course can be found at https://www.localgovernment.vic.gov.au/council-governance/candidate-training.
