It is a condition of employment in DECD schools and services that all individuals must attend  a full day, face-to-face Responding to Abuse and Neglect – Education and Care (RAN-EC) training session.

This is a requirement for teacher registration in South Australia and is an employment prerequisite in school and children’s services settings.

Please Note: You must be over 18 years of age to complete this training. If you are under the age of 18, you are not a mandatory notifier and therefore do not have the responsibility of notifying.


This course is run as a full day session in-house at 45 Wakefield Street or can be provided on-site.

It is important that participants arrive on time and stay for the duration of the training. Due to the requirements of this training certificates will not be issued to participants who miss any part of the day.

** The three-hour refresher session is now done online. Please refer to the Department for Education and Child Development website for more information.
