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. We are currently undergoing change within our department which is impacting on our availability to provide regular training sessions. Where we can, we will continue to offer training. When courses are available, they will be displayed below.
NOTE: DES Assistive Technology training can be accessed by any allied health professional in South Australia. Students actively engaged in a relevant clinical placement, and supported to attend by their organisation may also register to attend. If you would like to attend the training, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information regarding pricing and terms and conditions.
Once approved to attend, you can register by sending an email to email@example.com, including details of the session name(s) and date. You will then need to complete a Training Registration and Agreement Form with the approving manager / funder (where applicable). Please return this form as soon as possible. Terms and Conditions are to be read in conjunction with registration.
Each service has a key training contact who DES liaises with to provide information about upcoming courses, or to discuss registrations as needed. Please ensure these details are kept up to date and any changes are forwarded to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that registrations are closed one week prior to the training date. Whilst late registrations for sessions may be accepted, if the session is full then we will not be able to accommodate these. Likewise, if the session is under-booked at that point, the session may be cancelled. Please email any late registration queries to email@example.com.
Please check back intermittently for new courses and times.
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.

Please note that we accept registrations on a first- in first-served basis. If the session is full then we will discuss other dates available with you. The session may be cancelled if we have low numbers of registrations.
All registered people will receive a confirmation email approximately 1 week prior to the session date. This email will include information about the session time and a map with directions. The sessions are always held at our premises in Netley.
Any other inquiries about these sessions and training can be forwarded to email@example.com.
