RAN-EC child protection training

The RAN-EC update course has expired.

If you do not have a current RAN-EC certificate you must do the foundation course.

To work or volunteer with children and young people on department sites you must do training about your child protection responsibilities.

Sites include schools, preschools, children’s centres and out of school hours care services.

The training is called Responding to Abuse and Neglect –Education and Care (RAN-EC). It outlines your child protection role as a team member in education.

About the training

RAN-EC training is how we make sure we all have the same information and understand our role working together to keep children and young people’s safety and wellbeing at the centre of what we do. There is a set of courses available to meet the department’s requirements.

List of courses

Each of these courses is targeted to a specific audience and most have minimum requirements.
