**IMPORTANT NOTICE**

 

We are delighted to announce that Sport Integrity Australia will be partnering with Play by the Rules to house their online training modules on the Sport Integrity Australia e-learning hub.

As of June 17th, the Sport Integrity Australia LMS (Learning Management System) will be co-branded with Play by the Rules and will integrate the following courses:

  • Revised Child Protection Online Course
  • Harassment and Discrimination Online Course
  • Member Protection Information Office Course
  • Complaint Handling Training
  • Inclusive Coaching
  • Creating an LGBTI + Inclusive Club
  • All Mini-Courses

Hosting the Play by the Rules online training modules on the Sport Integrity Australia e-learning hub creates a single destination for all sporting codes and administration staff to access the appropriate educational materials and training on sport integrity, and will vastly improve the user experience in the process.

Bringing together the courses was a key recommendation from the Wood Review, which proposed a single identifiable education and outreach platform be established to develop and coordinate education, training and outreach courses. 

The Play by the Rules online courses will be available on our website on 17th June 2021 and from that date the Play by the Rules website will redirect to the Sport Integrity Australia e-learning hub: elearning.sportintegrity.gov.au

To facilitate this change, the links to Play by the Rules courses will be down for maintenance from Thursday 10th June until Wednesday 16th June 2021.


Member Protection Information Officers play an important role in sport. They provide information and guidance on complaints procedures - they are the 'go to' person if you want to discuss problems at your club/association, particularly if you are considering making a formal complaint.

The Member Protection Information Officer course is aimed at people seeking to become recognised MPIO officers in their State. The course contains 7 core modules.

The modules are:

  • Introduction
  • The MPIO Role
  • Complaint resolution procedures
  • Member Protection and the Law
  • Child Protection
  • Harassment and Discrimination
  • Ethical and Practical Considerations

Certification

For those people who wish to become recognised as an MPIO you will be required to attend a face-to-face workshop run by your sport or State/Territory Department of Sport and Recreation in addition to completing this online course.
