Training To Be A Welfare Officer

Advocacy Training and Development Program

The Advocacy Training and Development Program, or ATDP for short, is the next evolution of the Training and Information Program and replaces TIP. The ATDP has been developed as a partnership between the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA), ex-service organisations (ESOs) and the Department of Defence.

The vision of the ATDP is to train and develop selected practitioners to provide high quality advocacy services to current and former Australian Defence Force members and their dependents, covering rehabilitation, compensation, appeals and welfare.
