DTA Online Training Modules - Free DTA has responded to members' requests for online learning opportunities. DTA volunteers have developed a series of basic learning sessions that are provided FREE to members. Completion is worth 1 PD point. This series will be added to and changed over time.
The purpose of these sessions is twofold; to ensure that these most basic learning areas are covered and reflected on by all DTA members and to offer another opportunity to gain PD points - at no cost - from your own home - in your own time! To earn your PD point submit your answers to the questions and when they have been reviewed and accepted your PD point will be awarded and automatically recorded by DTA - 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
DTA gratefully acknowledges the support and contributions of DTA Members Eira Steane and Ernest Buckley in writing Session 2, 3 and 4- Dementia 1 and Dementia 2 and Dementia 3
Other Online Training Modules - Free
In addition - DTA 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 DTA and have their individual requirements and protocols to follow. You will need to keep evidence of completion to be available for renewal.
