DRTA Online Training Modules

These 5 FREE online sessions, developed by DRTA volunteers, are a wonderful tool to cover basic learning areas and to offer another opportunity to gain PD points. To earn your PD point (1 per module) submit your answers to the questions and when they have been reviewed and accepted your PD point will be awarded and automatically recorded by DRTA - no need to keep evidence.

Session 1 What is Leisure?

Session 2 Dementia 1

Session 3 Dementia 2

Session 4 Dementia 3 

Session 5 Outings 1

DRTA gratefully acknowledges the support and contributions of DRTA Members Eira Steane and Ernest Buckley in writing Session 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Other Online Training Modules - Free

In addition - DRTA encourages all members to participate in these FREE online training opportunities - again, the knowledge is so valuable to our practice quality and currency and also to assist you in earning PD points for renewal purposes. Investigate these websites to find the links - they are all unconnected to DRTA and have their individual requirements and protocols to follow. You will need to keep evidence of completion to be available for renewal.

Palliative Care online - www.palliativecareonline.com.au - offering 4 modules and about 6 hours work = 4 points total or 1 point per module.

UTAS Understanding Dementia - mooc.utas.edu.au - Understanding dementia certificate is about 27 hours work = 10 points - variations may earn extra points but these will all earn PD.
