Training Calendar The Commissions training calendar is produced biannually and circulated throughout the Territory with the Fair Go newsletter. This provides wide exposure to the training programs and results in many enquiries and bookings. The main focus of training is to provide an introduction to equal opportunity and anti-discrimination legislation. Courses are open to everyone and participants represent a diverse range of occupations and backgrounds. Over the last financial year, there has been an increasing focus on workplace training and the Commission has begun to change the format and planning of the calendar. From 2008, each subject area will be scheduled once in Darwin and regional areas per calendar with further dates being made available as the need arises. This will allow for more flexibility in meeting requests for programs and consultations across workplaces.
