This training was so fantastic and allowed us to have really important conversations about how to use this tool in a way that is culturally safe and respectful. It was also great yarning about Aboriginal risk and resilience factors as this is really useful and relevant to the work I do in community.

ASQ-TRAK Practitioner Training
The ASQ-TRAK is unique and user training is strongly recommended. A customised training program was developed alongside the adaption of the ASQ-3, based on adult learning theories and recommendations from the literature regarding culturally appropriate professional development methods. Administering the ASQ-TRAK without training increases the risk that the ASQ-TRAK will be used in culturally unsafe ways.
The University of Melbourne delivers ASQ-TRAK Training for organisations nationally. We offer customised outreach workshops and centre-based workshops at the University of Melbourne.
The ASQ-TRAK Training workshop has been:
- developed from culturally appropriate professional learning methods.
- shown to improve practitioners' skills, knowledge, competence, and confidence to identify and manage developmental difficulties and promote child development.*
Upon completion of ASQ-TRAK Training, participants are recognised as Certified ASQ-TRAK Practitioners. Certification includes access to further online resources and a Community of Practice to maintain knowledge currency.
