Playspace Development Training

Update: 2-Day Training Program, October 2021

Greetings to everyone registered to attend the June - August - September - October 2-Day Training Program at Westerfolds Park Templestowe.
I am really sorry to tell you that due to the continuing COVID crisis in Victoria we need to cancel this program, and all training programs scheduled for the remainder of 2021. Unfortunately the volatile situation in Victoria makes it impossible to plan with any degree of certainty.
Let’s hope that 2022 allows us to run our next program in February and I will keep you posted of the dates before we break up for Xmas.
I am happy to refund anyone on request, otherwise I will transfer your registration to 2022.

Kind regards
Barb Champion
Executive Director - Play Australia

Playspace Training

What is our training about?

The purpose of our training is to build the confidence and capability of industry to:

    1. Unlock creative processes to improve playspace design

    2. Apply Australian Standards and good practice to playspace design

    3. Develop and operate effective maintenance programs for playspaces

Note – participants will receive level 1 & 2 certification from Play Australia.

The program is designed for people working in the government and non-government sectors, involved in the design, development and management of play equipment and playspaces.

A range of training methods will be utilised to ensure that the program meets the needs of all participants.

Engaging presentations and onsite case studies will be included.

The presenters are the leaders in their field and have unrivalled expertise and experience in the key areas of Australian Standards, design and maintenance of play equipment and facilities.
There are also invaluable networking opportunities for participants across industry.

What are people saying about our training?

The City of Prospect sent four representatives to the training program. All four have advised that they thoroughly enjoyed the day and gained a lot of knowledge from the experience. They commented that the knowledge and enthusiasm shown by Rob and you (Barb) was an inspiration. I have seen this knowledge already with all four brainstorming a new approach to replacing a piece of play equipment. I don't think this would have happened prior to attending the Program. Well done to all involved and thanks again…
