Staff Training

We are a learning organisation

We translate evidence into practice

RDNS New Zealand is committed to providing service excellence. We do this through award winning and evidenced based training to meet the need of our clients and community.

We are proud to offer paid monthly education sessions to our support worker staff on a variety of topics. Many of these are available through Careerforce, an organisation that we maintain a close relationship with.

RDNS New Zealand’s learning & development advisor is dedicated to working with internal subject matter experts and external specialists to develop and deliver the best possible training solutions to our staff.

RDNS Education and Learning Centre

We are a registered training organisation

The RDNS Education and Learning Centre (ELC) is an Australian Registered Training Organisation (RTO #5060) established and registered in 1997. The ELC has a proud history of valuable contributions to society through accredited education and learning. 

The ELC’s facilitators are registered nurse educators, offering a unique position of quality training to individuals, organisations, and businesses. It is a fee-based service provider, however as part of a not for profit organisation, all fees and charges are directed back into RDNS’ community support services.


We encourage staff to undertake regular training

Although Australian based, much of the course information the ELC promotes is transferred to RDNS New Zealand staff through local training sessions and internal communications.
