Who are we?

In 2016 the Office of the eSafety Commissioner was allocated funding under the Women’s Safety Package to Stop the Violence to develop resources to help women affected by technology-facilitated abuse. eSafetyWomen provides a comprehensive website, as well as a face-to-face training program. eSafetyWomen—online training for frontline workers will complement and expand that work.

Who can register to use eSafetyWomen—online training for frontline workers?

Anyone who works in a professional capacity to support individuals and families in family and domestic violence situations can register to use this training course.

Do I have to register to access the training course?

Yes, to ensure that only appropriately trained and qualified people can access the training course, we require users to register. It is a quick and easy process.

What do I need in order to register for the first time?

You will need a current work email address, and you will need to agree to only use and/or share the information learned through the eSafetyWomen Learning Management System in order to protect women and children from technology-facilitated abuse.

What if I change organisations?

When you sign in you will be asked to create a username. If you change jobs or move on from an organisation you can still sign in using the same username, but will need to update the email address within your profile.

Can my clients sign in to access the training course?

These resources have been specifically developed for the professional development of frontline workers and are not for the direct use of clients. The topics do provide links to resources that can be shared with clients. eSafetyWomen also has resources for women at risk of technology-facilitated abuse.
