In 2000 for the final assessment of her Certificate IV in Training and Assessing, Anne Russell developed a complete training package on FASD. She was successful in obtaining her qualification in this field but the package was placed in her office drawer and didnt see the light of day until almost 10 years later.
In 2010, Anne again realised that training in FASD would be the most important aspect of any work she could do in the FASD space so harnessed the expertise in the rffada and in her network of experts around the world and gained consensus that the training she had developed was accurate, consistent and professional.
Anne contacted a registered training organisation called Training Connections Australia (TCA) because of their reputation for delivering training to vulnerable people in remote Indigenous communities in the top end of Australia. They signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the rffada and the training has been delivered around Australia by qualified trainers ever since.
TCA now has a range of training available for specific audiences. The FASD training can be contextualised to the needs of the organisation and can also be incorporated into policies and procedures if required. TCA can also help organisations develop Position Descriptions for employees delivering FASD services.
