Domiciliary Equipment Service

Training

The Department of Human Services (DHS) Equipment Program currently offers a training program for allied health professionals and those seeking to build skills in the selection of equipment and provision of home modifications.

This training can be accessed by any person who prescribes on behalf of the DHS Equipment Program. Training registrations are managed by Domiciliary Equipment Service (DES) through a training coordinator and administrative support officers. Each service has a key training contact who coordinates and forwards registrations to DES. Further details on registering training key contacts can be found here:

Please note that registrations are closed 1 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.

Other agencies seeking training opportunities for their staff wishing to access the program should contact the DHS Equipment Program Training Coordinator at DES for more information. General enquiries about training can be forwarded to equipment.training@sa.gov.au.
