*Please note:

  • You aren’t eligible to receive credit from the Deakin Faculty of Business and Law if you choose only to complete the RBT module.
    • (For full CoU program): Dates within each package are fixed and you are required to attend all ‘live’ Zoom virtual classroom workshops in order to claim CPD points and 0.5 Deakin RPL credit. As a courtesy to our trainers and your fellow participants, please ensure you’re available at the dates/times indicated for each session.
    • Session dates are not inter-changeable as you will be facilitated by the same trainer who is responsible for ensuring your wellbeing when discussing sensitive topics and engaging with and learning from the same participant cohort. This is to ensure that you get the most out of your Counting on U experience and to keep learning disruptions to a minimum. Please get in touch with us if you need to further discuss your personal circumstances.
    • The course has ‘live’ interactive segments to it and as the content can be confronting, we need to be able to see and hear you.  Please ensure that your camera is on throughout the workshop.
    • You are required to complete 1 hour of reading prior to the RBT Zoom session and 5-7 hours of self-led eLearning prior to the MHFA Zoom sessions. We will despatch all your course materials and online access password 1 week prior to your RBT session. (This gives you 1 week for RBT reading, and 2 weeks for MHFA e-learning).
  • All times shown are in New Zealand Standard Time.
