Preparing for NDIS registration

The rumours are true – unregistered disability services providers could be required to register and some providers are getting in early.

If you are considering registration before it could be mandated, this three hour workshop will help you to answer the question “what’s involved in registration?”

Why take this course?

In case you’ve missed all the news: The NDIS Review proposed a crackdown on unregistered providers and looks like the Government plans to take action. Gulp. 

This is kind of a big deal, given there are more than 150,000 unregistered providers. And if the changes are implemented, many providers will need some level of registration. Sure, nothing is changing right this second – but unregistered disability service providers needing some level of registration and auditing could be well and truly on the horizon. So where does that leave you?

This three hour workshop is about getting ahead of the game. A lot of unregistered providers are already looking to register so they’re prepared for what’s to come. So, let’s explore the obligations and requirements of NDIS provider registration so you can make an informed decision on whether you want to go down this pathway now (or wait and see what happens). 

What you’ll gain

Across three informative hours, we’ll dive into:

  • The current registration pathway – what needs to be done?

  • The requirements for Certification level registration

  • The difference in compliance requirements when you’re moving from unregistered to registered

  • How to use our Gap Analysis tool to prepare

Who’s it for?

  • Unregistered NDIS providers who are likely to need registration

What’s included?
