Private administrator training

The Public Trustee, together with the Office of the Public Advocate, runs a 3-hour session to help Private Administrators better understand what is required of them. This session is appropriate for both new administrators and those who might require a refresher on how to prepare their annual accounts. A catering and materials cost of $25 applies, which can be reimbursed from the Represented Person’s funds.

Administrators can book online at or by downloading, completing and returning the Private Administrator Training form or calling 1300 746 116. Session times for 2018 are:

  • Monday 20 August 9:30am to 12:30pm
  • Wednesday 14 November 5:00pm to 8:00pm

We recommend booking early as places are limited and cannot be reserved without confirmed payment.

Public Information Seminars and Events

The Public Trustee regularly holds information sessions for community organisations who would like to learn more about the Public Trustee and its services including Wills, Deceased Estates and Financial Administration.

While we would love to accommodate all requests, due to resource constraints, we are unable to help with talks for audiences smaller than 40 people. If you would like the Public Trustee to speak at your event but are unable to gather the required number of people, you may wish to consider partnering with another organisation or group who may also be interested.

Contact our Marketing and Communications Officer to discuss booking a speaker for your event.

WA Will Bank - Where's Your Will?

The WA Will Bank is a community service that safely stores Western Australian Wills in our purpose-built, fire-proof vault, keeping them safe from loss, theft and damage. It is free to store your own Will in the WA Will Bank.
