The workshop is to be held at the Mackay City Campus on the 21 & 22 of February 2017.

This unit of competency is part of the nationally recognised Community Services Training Package, and applies to health and community service workers, particularly those who may seek a Certificate Level Qualification.

Focusing on key elements:

  • Adopt work practices that support interactions with those affected by domestic and family violence,
  • Identify client’s needs, and
