On the Monday prior to the training, you will receive a reminder email from the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare.
Your email will say “Link to Training” – which will contain the link and password to participate in the training.

Before you attend online training there are three things you will need to remember.
First, download and test Zoom before the meeting if you have not used it before and log in 5 minutes before the start time to test your audio, if you are having difficulty log out and log back in. To minimise background noise, all participants will be asked to keep their computers on mute and use the ‘Chat’ function to ask questions that will be answered at the end of the training session.

Second, all participants will be required to display their first name and organisation they are from as part of everyone introducing themselves to the group.
Third, all participants will be asked to complete 2 short surveys during the workshop. This will only take a few minutes, and it is an essential data requirement to help us manage this project.
