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 yearly refresher training. You can count this time towards your continuing professional development. 

Upcoming training dates  

Tuesday 4 October – Tuesday 29 November 2022 

Cost 

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 infant-study@deakin.edu.au 

Eligibility 

You are eligible for refresher training one year after you’ve completed the initial online training, and then every subsequent year. 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.

What if I can’t complete the refresher training? 

INFANT will offer the refresher training to eligible INFANT facilitators each year. There will be several dates offered each year, and the training will be open for several weeks each time.
