*Accreditation to deliver Wesley LifeForce suicide prevention training will be based on the master trainer assessment of the participants’ understanding of the program content and intent and their ability to deliver the program.

Accredited trainers

As an accredited trainer you will be licensed to promote and deliver workshops commercially in their local area under two scenarios:

  • Independent workshops—you will organise venues and promotion and purchase workshop attendee kits
  • Workshops on behalf of Wesley LifeForce—we will book venues, promote the workshops in the region and supply workshop attendee kits.

Trainers are required to have an ABN and provide evidence of a certificate of currency for public liability insurance and a current criminal record check.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

It is anticipated that participants in this module will be Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community workers. Trainers are required to have access to regular clinical supervision.

Fees

The Wesley LifeForce Train the Trainer Program carries a fee of $2,200 (inclusive of GST). Participants will receive a kit including a facilitator manual, workshop workbooks, program presentations, workshop videos, electronic copies of workshop materials and support materials.

Maintaining accreditation

Accredited trainers will be required to deliver a minimum of four workshops annually, as well as complete annual online refresher training.
