We have Accredited Training Programs!
In addition to our recognised training programs & seminars we provide VETAB (Vocational Education and Training Accreditation Board) accredited courses.

Robyn Gaspari wrote CRN's competency based training programs which were accredited by the Vocational Education and Training Accreditation Board (VETAB) in August, 1995. CR Skills course (Module One) is now offered as a competency based training program at ASF4 Level, which utilises appropriate learning outcomes and assessment criteria. If participants wish to do CR skills as these accredited programs, it will involve pre-course work, face-to-face training, and assessment of learning outcomes to meet the stated competencies.

This assessment includes practical demonstrations, short answer papers analysing role plays and case studies, multiple choice questionnaire based on research of the text book Everyone Can Win, and a Capstone project which draws together all the learning outcomes of the course.

After the face-to-face section of the course, ten weeks is recommended for participants to complete the material for assessment.  Participants who attended Conflict Resolution Network training programs since 1995 may apply for recognition of prior learning and will be assessed with a view to be given some exemption from all or part of the face-to-face stage of the program and appropriate post-course assessment work.

Current VETAB Accredited Courses

The Module One VETAB Accredited program, Conflict Resolution Competency-Based Training Program (65 hours) , is designed to meet the needs of participants in the work force who may not be able to complete the whole program at the same time. We have therefore, included four exit points which permit students to partially complete and then re-enrol when they are ready to proceed. This means there are four separate programs contained within the Conflict Resolution Competency-Based Accredited Program.

These are:

1. Conflict Analysis
2. Skills for Handling Interpersonal Conflict
3. Problem-Solving and Negotiation
4. Processes and Strategies of Mediation

Participants wishing to undertake the competency based training can do this in the same training program with participants who have chosen to complete the standard program. There is an additional cost for competency based training.

VETAB courses may be completed by External Study            

CRN Community-Based Projects has developed an external study course covering Module One for VETAB Accreditation at ASF4 Level. We can now meet the needs of students unable to attend workshops through time or distance constraints. The accredited
course can be undertaken in your own time as external study.

It is envisaged that additional training programs to be submitted to VETAB in 1998 for accreditation will be available as self-paced learning programs for distance education students. Proposed costs are included on the registration form enclosed.
