Orientation to HDR Supervision Program

All new HDR supervisors must complete a mandatory HDR Supervision Orientation (Course code HDR30). The 2019 HDR Supervision Orientation Program (HDR30) is offered via an iLearn site - HDR30. It is open all year and can be completed anywhere, anytime. There is no time limit in terms of how long it takes you to complete, although if you self-enrol in 2019, you need to finish in 2019.

You CANNOT be appointed as an HDR Supervisor if you do not have HDR30 on your HR Online Training Record. It is important that HDR30 appear in your HR Online Training Record, because this allows it to also appear on your PURE Research Profile.

Please note that there are two steps required for enrolment and completion of HDR30.

1. Self-enrol in the iLearn site for HDR30

2. Register for the current offering of HDR30 via HROnline.

Claim for Current Competence

HDR30 (the HDR Supervision Orientation Program) must appear in your HR Online record in order for you to be able to be approved to supervise an HDR candidate.

HDR30 can be completed in two ways:

  • ​By completing Tasks in the iLearn site. This option is suitable for novice- early- and mid- career HDR supervisors
  • By submitting a Claim for Current Competence via the iLearn site. This option is suitable for highly experienced HDR Supervisors.
