A USI is a Unique Student Identifier. You need one to enrol in our workshops (except our public DV-aware workshops) and eLearning courses because they are nationally recognised. This means the Australian Government requires us to have a USI on file for you, before we can provide you with a Statement of Attainment for our training.
Find out more here about getting or finding your USI (once you have one, it lasts for life).
If you’re currently on work placement in a frontline capacity (including in the health, allied health, education, childcare or community sectors), you should be eligible for our nationally recognised workshops or courses.
If you haven’t yet started work placement, please consider our DV-aware workshops instead. Once you start your placement, you should be eligible for our nationally recognised workshops or courses.
Domestic and family violence and sexual assault cannot be excused or justified under any circumstances. All people subjected to domestic and family violence, regardless of their gender, need compassionate and highly responsive support and all those who use violence must be held accountable for it.
Although our training focuses on women and their children, DV-alert will provide the skills to recognise, respond and refer all people subjected to domestic and family violence, regardless of their gender.
To receive a Statement of Attainment, you need to have successfully completed a DV-alert 2-day face to face workshop, 3-day virtual workshop or eLearning course. This also means you need to have provided a valid USI when enrolling online for the workshop or course. If you need help, please contact us to find out the status of your statement.
If there are places available in the workshop you’d like to attend, you can participate for professional development purposes but please contact us to confirm this before enrolling. You won’t be able to do the assessment again if you have already received the Statement of Attainment for the unit of competency.
If the workshop fills up, you might need to give up your place to someone who hasn’t done a DV-alert workshop before.
It takes about five business days to review an enrolment application for our workshops and eLearning courses. You should receive an email with your log in and other details after that. Please check your junk/spam folder in case it goes there and contact us if you need to.
Our nationally recognised training is designed to assist frontline workers/volunteers in the health, allied health, education, childcare and community sectors who might interact with people experiencing domestic or family violence. You need to be working or volunteering in a community frontline capacity to be eligible.
It is not designed to help prepare you for work in the domestic and family violence sector.
Please also note that our DV-aware workshops are available to anyone aged 18 years and over, who lives in Australia.
