Following the establishment of Sport Integrity Australia and an extensive review of the Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO) program, MPIO training has been updated to meet the current needs of our sporting community.

With thousands of MPIOs across the country and hundreds completing the training each year, the updated online course and face to face workshop provide comprehensive training on being the first point of call for issues in a community sport club.

MPIO training covers:

  • The role and responsibilities of an MPIO
  • How MPIOs can help triage member protection and child safeguarding issues within a club
  • Where to refer people if they have a complaint
  • Trauma-informed listening practices
  • How to create an inclusive, safe, and fair sporting club environment.

To support the updated training, there is a new suite of resources available including guides, templates, and social media content.
