This course is for practitioners working in mental health, or alcohol and other drugs services. The course consists of seven hours of formal learning, five hours of recommended self-learning and an online assessment which is estimated to take two hours to complete.
As a nationally accredited course, it is monitored to ensure it meets current industry expectations for observing and documenting the MSE. This means that the course reflects the latest evidence-based practice methods and knowledge as well as industry best practice standards for competent performance. Unlike a ‘workshop’ style course where learners take away from the experience what is relevant to them and their practice, competency-based training specifies what competent performance is. This means that learners will receive training in all essential knowledge and skills to satisfactorily achieve competency.
