Dementia Training Australia (DTA) is a consortium funded by the Australian Government to provide nationwide education on the support and care of people living with dementia. DTA offers a range of courses and resources including e-learning, workshops, webinars and tailored training packages. The nationally recognised training is delivered and assessed by Dementia Australia (RTO Code 2512) to over 3000 participants every year through the Dementia Essentials courses.
The consortium is made up of Dementia Australia and four universities – the University of Wollongong, La Trobe University, Queensland University of Technology and, the University of Western Australia. Its work is guided by a 'salutogenic' approach: a focus on factors that support health and wellbeing, and opportunities for a person with dementia to live as full a life as possible.
