DRTA Membership

DRTA currently has four membership types for qualified (or studying) Diversional Therapists, Leisure and Health Professionals or Diversional Therapy Assistants/ Lifestyle Coordinators/ Activity Officers and others interested in the field who hold a degree. All Full-Memberships are qualification-based. Experience will support and enhance your membership application, but it cannot replace any required minimum education and training. Life Memberships are honoured and recognised by DRTA, but these categories are closed to new members.

Many years of deliberation, consultation and research by successive Board’s, DRTA members and other stakeholders have gone into the establishment of these Membership types – and there will be further developments in the future no doubt, as the profession grows and changes into the future. Simple policy documents have been developed around each of these membership types. Apply for membership now! Any questions on membership?– contact DRTA office enquiries@diversionaltherapy.org.au
