Lifeline is running free accredited training on Domestic Violence Response for health, allied health and community frontline workers who, as part of their work, come in contact with people experiencing or at risk of domestic violence.

DV-alert (or Domestic Violence Response Training) is a nationally accredited training program that enables frontline workers to recognise signs of domestic violence, respond with appropriate care and refer cases to relevant support services.

DV-alert is available at NO COST to all to health, allied health and other community frontline workers across the country.

A two-day face-to-face DV-alert workshop will be held in Tasmania in the following dates below. Training details will be sent to enrolled participants after registration.

To support frontline workers who are undertaking DV-alert, Lifeline will cover costs for travel, accommodation and staff backfill. DV-alert is supported and fully funded by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA).

Workshop participants who complete the course will receive a recognised Statement of Attainment for the unit CHCDFV301A - Recognise and Respond Appropriately to Domestic & Family Violence. The training is structured to support assessment and training delivery against relevant units of competency and qualifications in Community Services CHC08.

DV-alert is also recognised to account for significant number of points for Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for nurses.
