Acting Minister for Workforce Training
The Northern Territory Government will match $400,000 in Federal Government funding to deliver low cost infection control training to Territory businesses.
The training will enable the rollout of specific infection control short courses to a wide variety of businesses to make workplaces COVID-19 safe.
Customer facing industries such as retail, hospitality, food preparation and transport and logistics, will be prioritised, along with cleaning and security service industries.
Businesses will pay no fee or a small fee for training previously only widely available in the health sector.
Additional training will also be available to increase infection control skill levels in sectors such as aged and disability care.
