Learn About All Things Assistive Technology With LifeTec

LifeTec is a leading provider of AT professional education and training on assistive technology for health professionals, community care workers, organisations, workplaces and individuals that have an interest. All resources and materials have been developed by LifeTec’s own health professionals who have a high level of clinical knowledge and related experience in these areas. We have also developed free resources on specialist information covering a wide range of topics.

Our courses are developed for those who are using or planning to work with assistive technologies.

Assistive Technology (AT) is a key element and strategy that aims to support people with disabilities and aged care needs in wellness, re-enablement and participation. It’s therefore crucial that professionals in the industry and those with an interest can undergo professional learning and training on AT so that they can use it to help those they work with.

LifeTec has developed skills and training packages targeted at adding value to the role that community care workers and health professionals play in supporting people with AT needs. Our education and professional training services are specifically designed for people working in the health and community sectors. We can also put together tailored packages for organisations.
