Supported Residential Services Training

The Department of Health and Human Services funds Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) to offer FREE, specialised training courses and workshops for SRS staff and proprietors. The training is designed to provide skills and knowledge to assist and improve the safety and quality of services provided to residents.

The Department of Health and Human Services will provide a $50 backfill supplement per SRS employee who attends in recognition of its importance. To claim this supplement, a tax invoice must be sent to LASA within 3 months of the date attended and before the close of the financial year.

LASA’s team of facilitators are experts in their fields and are selected specifically because of their experience in the supported residential service sector.

LASA will endeavor to deliver the training workshops on all of the scheduled dates but please be aware that changes can occur. LASA will make every attempt to contact any registered participants if this occurs. SRS proprietors must ensure that they have appropriately trained staff, relevant to the SRS’ residents’ needs.

Personal support coordinators (PSC) must complete a minimum of 40 hours training every three years in priority training areas.

For enquiries, please phone 1300 111 636 or email events@lasa.asn.au

Please note, we have recently updated the registration process. You are now able to register more than one staff member at a time for multiple training dates.
