2019 Training Schedule
The Level 1 and Level 2 workshops form part of the competency requirements for the Wheeled Mobility and Postural Management credentials for EMS assessors. Training workshops are subsidised by the Ministry of Health (MOH) for assessors employed by MOH funded providers and, to a lesser degree, assessors employed by the Ministry of Education or Specialist School providers. Workshops that are open to everyone, including private assessors and suppliers, are indicated with an asterisk (*).
Workshops are scheduled based on demand. There are cost benefits to hosting workshops. If you are a MOH funded service, consider hosting a Level 1 or Level 2 workshop. Complete a Request to Host a Workshop form so we can respond accordingly. Any general queries regarding workshops can be directed to email@example.com.
