    Research output: Other contribution

    Abstract

    This review was undertaken by the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) at Flinders University to examine aspects of alcohol and drug training courses offered through Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) within the vocational education and training (VET) sector. The review also specifically addressed issues in relation to cannabis training content.

    The review is a companion document to a previous project that collated information about RTOs providing alcohol and other drugs (AOD) training in Australia:

    Roche, A. M., & White, M.R. (2011). Alcohol and Other Drug VET Qualifications and Training Providers Database. Adelaide, South Australia: National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA), Flinders University.

    It also supplements earlier work undertaken by NCETA that involved a survey of AOD managers’ views about VET Training:
