Education Subscription

AOPA recognises the value of connecting with the broader allied health community and therefore offers an education subscription to those not eligible for membership.

Our education subscribers include other allied health professionals, affiliated companies and facilities and orthotic/prosthetic technicians that wish to remain connected with the profession and the orthotic/prosthetic community.

This subscription costs $275 annually and provides the following benefits:

  • Access to regular national webinars & education opportunities
  • Hard copy editions of the bi-annual Association magazine, the The AOPA Review
  • Subscription to the AOPA eNews for regular email updates which detail current Association activities and alert you to upcoming CPD events
