LASA’s Online Professional Development Program has been designed to meet the shifting needs of the age services industry and we are continually adding new education and programs to our schedule. The online delivery model presents a simulated classroom experience through the use of live video functionality. A virtual meeting room enables you to interact in real time with the facilitator and other participants providing valuable peer to peer learning and a fully supported experience. We have broken our courses down into short sessions to enable minimal interruption to your working day and make attendance easily accessible from any location in Australia. All participants are issued a certificate of attendance with CPD points upon completion. So, jump online and register now to expand your knowledge!

This masterclass provides an understanding of what the Aged Care Quality Standards are and demystifies how they apply to home care settings.
