About these events:

The Centre, in partnership with the Department of Human Services (DHHS) is delivering MARAM training for those practitioners who have roles that align with responsibilities at the Screening and Identification level or Brief and Intermediate level for targeted workforces.  The training is provided at no cost.

This training will support practitioners to understand their responsibilities under this important new reform, including what it means for their day-to-day practice. 

The MARAM training is targeted to specific workforces:

MARAM Screening and Identification level training will be offered to Care Services (previously OOHC) and Maternal and Child Health workforces.

MARAM Briefing and Intermediate level training will be offered to the Child FIRST/ Family Services, Alcohol and Other Drug Services, Homelessness and Designated Mental Health workforces (Please note: Child FIRST practitioners in Orange Door services who have completed Comprehensive training are not required to attend this training).

If you require further guidance on your alignment at an Intermediate level, please see the MARAM responsibilities: Decision Guide for organisational leaders.

Please note that anyone who has registered for this training who is not in one of the designated workforces may have their registration reviewed. If you have questions about this or special circumstances you wish the facilitators to consider, please contact the team. Further information on MARAM training for other workforces.
