DV-alert is free, nationally accredited training to help frontline workers recognise the signs of domestic and family violence and know what to do next.
Frontline workers hold a unique position of trust in the community and may be the first to see the signs.
DV-alert is led by experienced trainers dedicated to reducing violence against women and their children. Our workshops provide a safe space for frontline workers to learn, connect and be empowered to recognise and respond confidently to those in crisis.
After successfully completing the workshop, you’ll receive a Statement of Attainment for the unit of competency CHCDFV001: Recognise and respond appropriately to domestic and family violence.
What will I learn?
In attending our nationally accredited 2-day face-to-face workshops, you’ll learn how to:
- RECOGNISE the signs of domestic and family violence
- RESPOND confidently
- REFER appropriately
Our workshops are run by our experienced trainers. There are three assessment tasks to complete during the workshop.
