Training and Information Sessions

Domiciliary Equipment Service (DES) is committed to supporting agencies and their staff to meet the assistive technology (AT) needs of their clients.

When courses are available, they will be displayed below.

Using DES as your NDIS Provider

Using DES as your NDIS Provider

DES is a Registered NDIS Provider and has recently developed information sessions to help allied health professionals to use DES to access Assistive Technology (AT).

These sessions are open to anyone who assesses for assistive technology through the NDIS and it is free to attend. Our aim is to provide you with information to help make the process of getting AT easily and as smoothly as possible.

What does the session cover?

The session is broken into two parts. First, we focus on the relationship between DES and the NDIS in Assistive Technology (AT) provision. The second part discusses DES and how we operate as a business. This part will give you an opportunity to see the warehouse and meet some of our staff in each of the areas of our business.
