MARAM training: Working with adults using family violence 

No to Violence is working in partnership with Family Safety Victoria (FSV) to deliver MARAM training modules for practitioners who need to have an applied understanding of MARAM and information sharing in their roles when working with adults using family violence.

MARAM sets out the responsibilities of different workforces in identifying, assessing and managing family violence risk across the family violence and broader service system.

There will be three levels of training released over 2023-24: 

  • Identification 
  • Intermediate  
  • Comprehensive 

Depending on your role within an organisation, you will learn about different responsibilities and practice guides to keep perpetrators in view and accountable and to promote the safety of victim survivors of family violence.

The MARAM responsibilities decision guide provides an overview of how you may determine which level of responsibilities you hold. 

Identification module now available 

We are pleased to announce that training is now available for those workers who hold Identification responsibilities under the MARAM framework.

This training is suitable for all professionals who may identify family violence is occurring and who engage with people in a one-off, episodic or ongoing service. This training focuses on working with adults using family violence.

During this training, practitioners will learn to identify indicators for a person likely to be using family violence by observation of common narratives and behaviours. Participants will learn how to respond according to their roles and responsibilities and will be supported to use the Identification Tool.

Training options include:

  • Full day online facilitated training (available)
    This option is a one day fully facilitated training session. Anyone at the Identification level can attend this training, and it is recommended that individuals who have not completed any previous MARAM training attend MARAM Victim Survivor training first.
  • Hybrid eLearn and half-day facilitated training (available from early 2024)
    This option includes a compulsory eLearn and half day facilitated session. Participants must complete the eLearn ahead of attendance at the training session. The eLearn should be completed 1 – 2 weeks prior to attending a half day facilitated workshop.  

All facilitated sessions are currently being offered online.

In-person sessions will be available in future. For organisations, ACCOs or sector-specific focused training please contact NTV at to arrange.

On completion of the training participants will receive a Certificate of Completion.

The Intermediate and Comprehensive modules will launch in early 2024. Please register your interest below.
