Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO) training will be held on Sunday, 24 November 2019 from 9:30am – 1:30pm. Tennis SA strongly recommends that each club has at least one person performing this important role.
Nominations are now open, with limited spaces are available. Successful completion will enable the participant to register with Sport Australia as a recognised MPIO and get ongoing access to support materials. The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing recommends that active recreation organisations aim to appoint one or two Member Protection Information Officers.
The MPIO’s role is to provide appropriate advice to the club around their Member Protection Policy when issues arise. The MPIO is also responsible for providing information about a person’s rights and responsibilities and options available when making a complaint or raising a concern, as well as support during the process. The MPIO does not investigate or attempt to resolve a complaint.
To become an MPIO and be registered with Sport Australia a person must:
• Register for free online training at http://learning.ausport.gov.au and complete all MPIO modules. Then save their certificate of completion.
• Attend a free face to face MPIO training session at ORSR
• Complete registration with Sport Australia (using the unique link provided) following the completion of both the online and face to face courses
Registration for the course on 24 November 2019 is available at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WHL9BNB or can be found via the Courses and Events page on the ORSR website http://ors.sa.gov.au/upcoming_courses_and_events
The intended participant is required to upload their online MPIO Certificate of Completion during the registration process or alternatively the Certificate can be emailed direct to MT Smith (see contact details below) prior to attending the training session.
