This workbook is designed to assist people with a disability (which includes a chronic medical condition) considering their post-secondary education and training options. The workbook is suitable for secondary school students, vocational education and training (VET) students, potential apprentices/ trainees, potential university students and people looking to change their career direction. We hope it will be used by secondary school students in Year 11 or earlier. Teachers and trainers facilitating career planning sessions with people with a disability could also use it. This project was a joint RDLO/Disability Coordination Offi cer (DCO) Initiative and can be accessed on the following websites. http://www.cdu.edu.au/rdlo http://www.disabilitycentral.com.au/ http://www.hstac.com.au/ Professional Development for RTOs Disability Standards RDLO NT, Liz Reid, will be delivering Disability Standards for Education and Disability Awareness sessions during 2006.

Territorians accessing training were not restricted by age, gender or experience with the initial stage being completion of a medical and compulsory induction process along with a 1 week Lagging course conducted in Winnellie by Advanced Training International Incorporated. These Lagging courses were held over an 8 month period in 2005 and provided hands-on practical training along with the essential safety requirements and knowledge in handling chemicals and materials to apply protective coatings to the newly installed gas pipes at the LNG Plant. 2
