INFANT Refresher Training
Refresher training for INFANT facilitators
The INFANT refresher training is a 1.5-hour self-paced online course, open for up to 8 weeks. To maintain your accreditation to facilitate INFANT sessions in your LGA and retain access to the facilitator resources, you will be required to complete a refresher training every two years. You can count this time towards your continuing professional development.
Upcoming training dates
Monday 20 March – Friday 14 April 2022
The refresher training is free for trained facilitators in Victoria. If you are working outside of Victoria and would like to participate in this refresher training, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
You are eligible for refresher training one year after you’ve completed the initial online training, and then every two years subsequently. If you can’t recall your exact training date, don’t worry as you will receive an email from the team once you become eligible for refresher training.
Even if you haven’t started to implement INFANT, you are still eligible for refresher training after one year. The refresher training will help you to stay up-to-date with healthy eating and active play information, and to connect with and hear from other INFANT program facilitators.
If you have completed the INFANT facilitator training in the following rounds and did not complete a refresher training in May 2022, you are due for a refresher training:
- Aug 2020
- Oct 2020
- Feb 2021

- Sept 2021
