I'm sure many people already know, but I just found this training for NDIS workers - it's really well made and very informative.
A space to air news of what’s working well and what’s not, constructively - without rage and blame.
Sharing ideas for what’s needed to encourage government or service agencies to join disability care people in creating solutions.
No advertisements on the disability care people site but agencies are welcome to share stories of enablement. Authentic testimonials are free to share.

Thanks for sharing, Chiara. This is also information about training (ncluding free and online) in the Info and Resources section of Disability Care People. Here is an extract:
To get a job as a disability support worker you should have a first aid certificate Level 2, a National Police Check certificate and some training (or personal experience) in the personal care and support of a person with a disability. If you are new to the field, your employer may provide you with some basic training as required by law. You can also get information on the Internet about disability, the rights of a person with a disability the obligations of support services, and the advocacy role of disability support workers. You should do the NDIS online training course https://www.ndiscommission.gov.au/workers/training-course
It is also great if you know about Person Centred Active Support - a way of working that enables everyone, no matter what their level of intellectual or physical disability, to make choices and participate in meaningful activities and social relationships. A free online course demonstrates how it works in a video: http://www.activesupportresource.net.au
It's a good idea to join the Disability Support Worker Registration Scheme - https://www.vdwc.vic.gov.au/about/why-we-need-a-disability-worker-regulation-scheme
There are many different types of disability, some mostly affecting a person’s physical capacities and others, which are cognitive, affecting the way a person thinks or feels. This guide is mostly about supporting people with intellectual disabilities.
