About the training
DV-alert has flexible learning options to support frontline workers who encounter people who are experiencing, or at risk of, domestic and family violence. Whether you are looking to obtain the unit of competency, to upskill and refresh your knowledge or just to know what to do, there is a learning pathway for you.
Attending either the 2-day Foundations workshop or the 2-day First Nations workshop is the best place to start your learning journey, whether you are seeking accreditation or not. These workshops will train you on how to recognise the signs of domestic and family violence, how to respond appropriately and how to make effective referrals.
Once you have completed any 2-day face-to-face, or 3-day virtual, DV-alert workshop you can return again and again to build on your knowledge by attending the 1-day focused face-to-face workshops each covering different topics and contexts where domestic and family violence occur: Women with Disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Multicultural, Engaging with Interpreters, Men who use Violence and Complex Forms of Violence.
Once the required courses have been completed (refer to the Assessment section below), learners will be eligible to enrol in an assessment session which is aligned to the nationally recognised unit of competency CHCDFV001 Recognise and response appropriately to domestic and family violence. Upon successful completion of the assessment, a Statement of Attainment will be issued by Lifeline Australia RTO 88036.
