DVRCV training: promoting good practice

Our training aims to improve services to women and their children who experience family violence.

We are a major provider of accredited training and professional development programs for family violence workers and other professionals. DVRCV is the only Victorian organisation specifically dedicated to family violence training.

Course Calendar: Semester 1, 2016

DVRCV is a Registered Training Organisation.

We receive funding from the Department of Human Services Victoria to provide family violence training. A calendar of training events is published every six months.

DVRCV also provides customised training to organisations on a fee-for-service basis. This can be taken from our calendar or specifically developed to meet the needs of an organisation.

Our training programs are very well attended and consistently receive positive feedback from participants.

What do participants say about DVRCV training?

I found the trainers very good, knowledgeable and allowed everyone to have a say.

Best springboard for going into DV work.

It was fantastic and the trainers were very easy to understand and had
a good inclusive style.

An excellent workshop — the pace and reflective modelling by facilitator consistent with content.

Good topic and useful workshop material. Useful, relevant, easy to use
and incorporate into practice.

One of most enjoyable training sessions attended, very, very good, lots
of knowledge, kept the day moving, both trainers clear and skilled.
