Applications for registration are now open to Victorian disability workers. Registration is voluntary and supports a safer, stronger disability sector.

Registration ensures Victoria's disability workers meet independent standards for safety, skills and professionalism, no matter how they are funded or employed.

Victorian disability worker registration is separate from the NDIS Worker Screen. For information on the NDIS Worker Screen, please visit the NDIS Worker Screen page.

The registration period runs from 1 October - 30 September.

Information on the requirements of registration, the registration process and how to register is available in the red box links below.

For disability workers
Registration aims to increase trust and confidence in your work. By registering, you will be supporting a stronger, safer disability sector. As a registered worker, you can also show employers you are safe, skilled and professional.

There are currently no fees to register.

By applying to register, you can qualify with two years of experience if you do not hold a qualification.

For people with disability, families and carers
Registered workers will have been assessed to be safe, skilled and professional.

You can be confident registered workers will meet professional standards - no matter what service provider they work for, where they advertise their services or how their services are funded.

For disability service providers
There are different standards in place to make sure disability workers are safe and professional, but not every disability worker is covered by these rules. Voluntary registration will create greater trust and confidence in the profession by ensuring registered workers have been independently assessed.

Service providers and employers can take confidence in recruiting registered workers knowing they have been assessed to be safe, skilled and competent professionals.
