A practical 20-minute eLearning module exploring the ins-and-outs of Worker Screening so you can feel confident you’re ticking the right boxes. Plus, a bonus DSC spreadsheet.

Why take this course?

NDIS Worker Screening is essential for safe and high-quality support. So, it’s clear why ‘The NDIS Practice Standards - Worker Screening Rules’ require registered providers to maintain specific records. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. Even though there’s a national database, individual states and territories have their own worker screening units and processes and all the information you need to record under the Rules is not automatically captured in the screening process. Oh, the complexity. 

This 20-minute eLearning module will guide you through the process of Worker Screening (for registered and unregistered providers and self- managing participants) and identify roles that require checks. You’ll leave with a better understanding of your obligations, plus be armed with a handy spreadsheet for recording information required under the Worker Screening Rules (including information about risk assessed roles, workers in risk assessed roles, exempt workers and contractors).

  • Who needs a Worker Screening
